Definitely check out Inyo-Mono counties:http://www.monocounty.org/http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/inyo/http://www.death.valley.national-park.com/visit.htmhttp://www.cathouse-fcc.org/
We are adjacent to Yosemite. Inyo County has Death Valley (lowest point) and Mt. Whitney (highest peak in the lower 48), the oldest living trees (Bristlecone Pines in White mtns). We have sand dunes, world class climbing, usu. the longest ski season in the nation. Ghost towns, including Bodie & Masonic. Infamous Charles Manson ("Helter-Skelter") moved his compound to Inyo & was captured by the Death Valley NP rangers, CHP & Inyo Sheriff's dept. We are also near Red Rock Canyon and the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound in Rosamond. We have all kinds of hot springs, resorts & "natural" (Tecopa Hot Springs, Whitmore, etc.). We are only 6 hrs from San Diego
In fact, we are primarily a tourist destination, but we still have lots of cattle ranching. I could go on & on....just let me know what you're interested in - just think, you can leave Bishop in a snowstorm in April & in 4 hours, same county, bask in upper 80s,low 90s in Death Valley or Tecopa
We are only 4 hours from Reno (Vegas without the crowds), 2 hours from Tonopah (nation's best stargazing). You can often get itinerant work around here.
And maybe we could go to court with my DH & watch the action (he's a contract public defender)
