Volcanic Tablelands

Two of the photos are of the Volcanic Tablelands, north of Bishop. There is camping there, too, but not the Buttermilks, which are west of Bishop.

nice place, nice views, if you like to pay but not much then this place is good when dry. watch out for rainy and wet days/nights, thats when it becomes the unpleasant pit.
