Robert,
It IS the name of the place. It may well not meet Texas standards or have any remote resemblance, but we like the food and the people.

Well it could be excellent. Not saying it isn't. And to be honest, sometimes the BBQ in Texas isn't up to snuff either!

If you are coming south on US395 there is nice camping around Mammoth CA where you will also find the Mammoth Brewing Co. Also on the way is Bodie State Park which is a great historic mining town that is maintained in a state of preservation.

I have to second the Bristlecone Pine idea. A friend suggested it. He said it was a short drive off the main highway. Well, it was long and it was UP. It took a long time in our old camper van. I don't think hauling a trailer is recommended? The drive was worth it to see the ancient trees and to be able to hike around the area.
