With all the talks about being eco-friendly and caring for the environment, a trip that will take you closer to nature will make you understand better what Al Gore is talking about. Helen and Joey Fe, together with their two girls, Kristina and Kassie took a camping trip to the famous Mono County, California, specifically the town of Bridgeport, which is considered one of the jewels of the Eastern Sierra
The town of Bridgeport and the Bridgeport Valley were originally called the Big Meadows. This fertile valley offers a glorious setting of open range and grassland. Visitors to Bridgeport often take advantage of one of California’s best-kept natural hot springs, the Travertine Hot Springs, in the hills to the east of the town.
Surrounded by vast National Forest lands, this section of Mono County is an unspoiled recreational playground with pristine lakes, rivers, streams and hot springs. Naturally, there’s great fishing, hunting, hiking, cross country skiing, snowmobile trails and horseback adventures.
From historic bed and breakfasts, to the more modern hotel chains, Bridgeport offers a whole range of amenities for all types and kinds of travelers. There are cozy cabins and inns. If camping out under the stars better suits you, a number of campgrounds and RV parks await your arrival.
