Report to Bishop California April 2014
Although we had
visited a few of the Bishop Rock Art sites on the Petroglyph Loop previously, we
returned to explore several sites which we had recently researched.
trip Ė nice visits to sites we had previously seen, to sites recently
researched, and we found several sites that we had not identified. This trip is
recommended to all Rock Art fans.
interesting Rock Art and plenty of it. And we did not find all of it. With
more time to search, I expect a lot of other Rock Art sites would be located
in the canyons.

Arriving at about 4:55 pm one day, we were told to come back the next
morning because they were closing for the day. We said we were not available
on the next morning, and ended up leaving the store disappointed. And we
did not return and probably never will. Better customer service
is expected when we are in a town for a few days. But they have been in
business for quite a while and I am sure the potential sale to me will not
be that important to them. I am aware they set their business rules, I
donít. If I did the attention to customers would be greater.
Many of our pictures were taken at mid-day because of timing
constraints. Try your best to photograph the Volcanic Tableland sites with
early or late sun. Your results should be much better.
