My brother kept telling us about Bodie, California, a ghost town east of the Sierras. But I don't think he ever visited it. When we got the opportunity to go with friends Jules and Martha to see it, we jumped at it.
While going through the Bodie pictures to choose some good ones for the blogpost, though, I happened upon the picture I used on my header from the historic Longmire district of Mt. Rainier National Park. The historic headquarters building is reflected in the windows of a historic bus which took passengers to Paradise.
Back to Bodie, though. It was fun to wander through the derelict buildings and those that are restored as the state park. I don't have much time here before we have to leave the wifi, so I am just going to give the pictorial tour of the site, starting with the description of the history.
