Bodie Ghost Town

Bodie Ghost Town 13

Gold was discovered at Bodie in 1859 and over the following few years more than a 100 million dollars in gold was dug up there.

However, when the gold ran out it was only a short time before all the residents abandoned the town.

Now it is a State Park and a great place to visit and photograph.

    I had the privilege of taking my family here in 2008. We loved the Bodie story, and enjoyed the mild and dry weather, which has kept the buildings in such a good state of preservation
