S2 E3: Tom’s Place & Long Valley w/ Cashbaugh Ranch Out Now!

In this string of four or five episodes we’re exploring ranches located in the Eastern part of the state off of U.S. Route 395. In the past 2 episodes we moved North from Kern County into the Owen’s Valley which is flanked to the west by the Sierra and by the White/Inyo Mountains to the East.

In this episode we hear from 5th generation rancher Maria Giacomini Kemp and her mother Alonna Cashbaugh Giacomini about ranching in Bishop and Long Valley. We also explore “Tom’s Place”, an unincorporated community in Mono County which was named for Tom’s Place resort, a mix of a market, saloon and cafe which serves a respite for weary travelers of all sorts… including (and especially) me.
