Eastern Sierra trip
updated: May 31, 2014, 2:45 PM

By Edhat Subscriber

We camped at Horton Creek for 8 days, 7 miles above Bishop in the Eastern Sierra. We have been going to this camp for 20 years, interesting how the population has changed. This year, over Memorial weekend, there were quite a few campers with little children, oldest 5; all seemed to be together, visiting back and forth. Nice to see children in the real world, instead of at Disneyland or in front of a TV. Years ago the camp was full of homeless, now they are gone, it's become $5.00 a day, with a 2 week limit. Thankfully, very few RVs, tent camping is popular. Most of the time there are very few people, I guess because it's pretty primitive. During the day other campers leave, we have the whole place to ourselves until sunset. My husband describes our stays as "sitting in the dirt reading"; actually we have chairs, and do spend our time with books. When we look up there are wonderful views all around, the photo with the road leading up the hill to camp shows Round Valley cattle ranches below. Nice place to get back to basics. just thought you'd like to see a groovy place!! Judy
