After leaving the Grand Canyon on Friday we made our way to Las Vegas which was about the half way point to Bishop, California.  We called on our way and got a room and tickets to see a show.  Any of you remember the band from the 70's called "Air Supply?"  It was an entertaining show and funny to see how many people still know all the words to those old songs.
We left the next morning to continue on up to Bishop to stay with Jim's cousin Lon and Chris.  We also met their friend Allen as well and the five us enjoyed a wonderful weekend together.  Their home in Bishop is surrounded by mountains and the back yard has a beautiful stream running through it.  We enjoyed two lovely dinners out on the patio, and one at a wonderful restaurant on Mono Lake.  We listened to a couple who sang and played bluegrass music there.  Chris bought two paintings from a local artist who had work hanging at the restaurant and the artist happened to be there.  It was such a lovely evening.  Then they toured us around the mountains and told us stories of the area.  Yesterday Jim, Lon, Chris and Allen played nine holes at SnowCreek Resort in the mountains.  Thanks so much Lon, Chris and Allen for a wonderful time.
Beautiful Places
Touring the Mountains...do you think it's cold?

I had an entire second day of beautiful scenery photographed and realized this morning I had left my memory chip in the computer!  I took a couple of dozen shots of nothin! :(
