A Bodie SkyWatch

Bodie State Park is a mining ghost town in the high desert east of the Sierra Mountains in California. The gold and silver mine and stamping mills there were active from the mid-1800s till 1942, when the federal government required all non-essential mining operations cease and men with mining expertise to work in war related materials.
The sky was incredibly blue the day we visited Bodie, making for a colorful, though cloudless Friday SkyWatch


Tomorrow some reflections from Bodie for Weekend Reflections.
