More from Bishop

We've continued to have an amazing time here in Bishop. The days have been generally warm, and the nights cold. As much as we freeze some evenings (and as much as we sometimes fantasize about sleeping in a bed/ cooking dinner in a kitchen some nights), there is something irreplaceable about seeing the sun rise and set over the Owens Valley every day.
As we settle into the climbing, I realize that I'm enjoying my time here much more than ever last year. Probably because I'm currently injury free and can actually try hard. So that's nice. And to keep ourselves injury-free (and showered), we've purchased a membership at the Bishop Fitness Center. We go in a couple times a week to lift weights, stretch, and shower.
Below are some photos from our last few days:

 Happy hour at Whiskey Creek is an excellent way to eat enormous hamburgers.

 Mono Lake is nearby, but even windier than Bishop.

After a day of climbing and a road trip to Mono Lake, cold Bratwurst and Sauerkraut on Little Caesar's Hot 'n' Ready pizzas sounded really good.
