Eastern Sierra Camping - Bridgeport, CA

Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest

USDA recently updated most of their National Forests maps to a new plastic waterproof versions, with El Dorado being the very last of the paper maps (that which is now outta print and outta stock).

Front cover design takes a twist with the new retro-looking map featured here - Toiyabe's Bridgeport Ranger District. It was updated and printed in 2014,  on plastic (polypropalene) just like all the other forest maps for California.

This particular map covers places like:
Mono Lake, Lee Vining, Conway Summit, Bridgeport, Buckeye Hot Springs, Travertine Hot Springs, East Walker River, Lundy Lake, Twin Lakes, Virginia Lakes, Bodie Ghost Town, Green Creek, Upper Summers Meadow, Dunderberg Meadow, and Hoover Wilderness.

This rural Eastern California region is located on US Highway 395 (north of Mammoth and south of Lake Tahoe).

Autumn aspen groves draw tourist sightseers every year as fall colors peak in October and are complete by November (with the first snow fall). Quite popular amongst all outdoor enthusiasts - hunters, fishermen, RV campers, backpackers, day hikers, car campers, horse packers, mountain bikers, dirt bikers, motorcyclist, boaters, kayakers, canoers, antique shoppers, cattle ranchers, snow skiers, cross country folks, and the most relaxed of all, hot springs soakers.
