I am in a city that lies in the heart of the deepest valley in North America. Half-way between two National Parks, a 2.5 hour drive to either one. An hour south is the highest peak in the contiguous United States, a couple hours south-east is the lowest point in the United States. Three hours east is the area that is home to the oldest living organism in earth’s history.

Where am I? Optional – What are the National Parks? The highest peak? Lowest point? Oldest organism?

Sorry about the delay in finishing this game – the laptop DIED and, well, you must know the sort of spin that puts a person into. Thankfully we didn’t loose much data. Going computer shopping today.

The answer is the incorporated City of Bishop California. And boy, wasn’t it nice to be “home” even if it was for less than 48 hours.

Other answers, Yosemite and Death Valley National Parks. Mt. Whitney, Badwater & Bristlecone Pines.

Thanks for playing. This game is now closed.
