Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Excellent see 'um coming views.
I'm up by Mono lake every year, camping and trout fishing at Lee Vining creek. I always make a trip into the ghost town Bodie.
The back road out of Bodie, down the canyon and ultimately over Lucky Boy Pass and to Hawthorne, is one of my favorite drives.
I go through there often when I drive between LA and Reno - and stopping is the best part of driving.
