California's "Mother Road"

The L.A. Times ran a good article today on Highway 395, which we travel most summers to the Eastern Sierras.

This year we hope to stop in Lone Pine and visit the Museum of Lone Pine Film History.

The article also mentions our favorite stop, further north along the 395, Schat's Bakkery in Bishop.

However, author Hugo Martin missed another fun stop, Gus's Really Good Fresh Jerky located in lonely Olancha, although he does refer to it in passing.

And Martin stops chronicling the 395 at Bodie, missing the gem of the 395 just a little further on: beautiful Bridgeport, California, our home away from home one week each summer. We camp along Robinson Creek a few miles outside Bridgeport.

To the right, the 1880 courthouse on Bridgeport's Main Street, which is a part of the 395.
