    Next day... The Tioga Lodge along the shores of Mono Lake has become a favorite. Cabins, and restaurant on site.
    http://www.tiogalodgeatmonolake.com/ if you want to look it up. No TV, no phones, not even an alarm clock. Perfect!

    First went to take a look at Virginia Lake, a high alpine lake above 8000 feet. Small, but quite picturesque.

    Road there was half the fun too. Bunch of folks watching the day go by fishing.

    I really like this photo due to the reflection in the mirrored shield. Gives the photo a whole 2nd dimension to it.

    While we were standing there, this fella, John & his wife Chris rolled up. "Where the **** are we?", he asked.

    From Australia, they had shipped over their bikes, and been on the road for 3 months! As you can see, they'd been everywhere.

    So we ceremoniously added a Pashnit sticker to John's hard bag. Seems he was familiar with the Pashnit CA Moto Roads site and had used it to plan portions of their 3 month plus ride. Funny how small the world is sometimes.

    Nice to just kick tires and shoot the breeze for awhile. Recognize this bike? Probably not. You can't get it in the US.

    See that view? That's Sonora in the distance.

    Later, I took the guys to Calaveras Big Trees State Park. Always an experience to comprehend just how big these things are.

    Now watch this...
