Yesterday afternoon hubby and I decided it would be a good day to visit Bodie state park. Bodie is an old, abandoned mining town, which the inhabitants finally left after the 3rd time it burned down. There are, however, some remarkable buildings which are still standing, including the church, school, firehouse (ha!), hotel, post office, and lots of homes. And, yes, their outhouses are still there (covered over with wooden planks). It was very cold and windy up there yesterday and it wasn't very crowded, so hubby and I were able to get photos without people in the way. Hooray! Bodie is 13 miles off Highway 395 and the last 4 miles are a very rough, dusty, and bumpy dirt road, so be prepared! These are just a few of the photos I took yesterday at Bodie.
