Pennies 4 Ponies

Bishop, California

Bishop, CA: I put a handful of quarters into the "Pennies 4 Ponies" collection tin at the local donuterie, a sort of homage to my fave Bishop resident, bug-eyed and red above South Main now for as long as I remember. After Fernley, Austin, Eureka, Ely, and Tonopah, Bishop's a shiny stable steadily-growing centre of things (the whole US 395 / Mammoth / LA thing, I think), one of the places I stumbled across in the late 1980's as I drove my battered old Honda Accord around the state almost randomly. I've been coming here once or twice a year ever since.

Don't change a thing! That horse has been such a familiar and welcome landmark for ages that I'm not sure what I'd do if I didn't see him up there on the right while driving into Bishop from Lone Pine :-).
