I got up this morning to a lot of wind. I checked the weather and it was blowing 10-15 mph. I was debating whether to stay or head out into the wind.I checked the Weather Channel and it said windy today and windier tomorrow (15-25mph). If I stayed here I would need to stay two more days. I needed to get a few items at Walmart so packed up and headed to the Walmart in Ridgecrest, CA. The wind wasn’t too bad so decided to head out. My destination was Mono Lake where I know a great boondocking spot.
There were a few times when the wind got very gusty, but overall it was OK.
Stopped in Bishop
I had to stop at the Schat’s Bakery to pick up their famous Sheepherder’s bread. However they were completely sold out. BUMMER!!! Instead I got a loaf of Sourdough Rosemary bread which I am sure will also be very delicious. I couldn’t wait so just buttered a slice and it was really yummy.
I am boondocking in the same spot I had when I came up here in 2012. It is a great spot overlooking the lake.
This is a pic of some of the beautiful wild flowers growing right outside our door.
Some pics taken in different directions surrounding our campsite.
There is still snow on the surrounding mountains as we are up 8,000 feet. The temp is supposed to get down to 35 tonight so Chica is already warming up on my jacket. Looks like we will run the heat tonight.
We loved that spot at Mono Lake. Should have told you about the Energy Loaf from Schats, although it used to sell out early, too. Excellent toasted for breakfast!
Schat’s is a great place to stop. Glad you were able to find something you liked. Hard not to. Enjoy your view!
