Big Pine
Approaching Big Pine on Hwy. 395
  Big Pine a small town along highway 395 on the way to Bishop which serves as a gateway to the Alabama Hills, several creeks, canyons, and old gnarled bristlecone pine trees that are hundreds of years old.  A nice little town with a park and a fire station with an all volunteer fire dept., town hall, a shopping area, a nice country church, a library and some well preserved older homes.

More then that it is a historic town.  One of many in this area which played a role in the LA Aqueduct project to providing a place for trans-shipping of mining ore from local mines.   More about this  area can be seen
