    Good job by all those involved putting this one out….I once went to Bodie and took the back way when I left,I believe called Conway Ranch Road…thinking it would be a nicer trip than the 3 or 4 mile washboard and winding road…was told you’d end up near Mono Lake and then getting back on HWY. 395,which it did,after a 1 1/2 hour delay when cattle refused to leave the roadway no matter what I did trying to get them to move on….It’s a beautiful drive going that way for those that haven’t done it.
