If you ever find yourself planning a trip to Yosemite you have to stop in Bishop, CA at "Erick Schat’s Bakkerÿ." I had the most amazing jalapeño cheese bread straight out of the oven. I really wish I would have bought more than one loaf because that one didn't make it out of the parking lot.
They credit themselves as the creators of "The Original Sheepherder Bread," which I believe was similar to sourdough. But as far as leaving a lasting impression it was no competition for their cheese topped delights.
