Bodie State Park

Francis and I visited the fascinating Ghost town of Bodie up which is the high Sierra south of Lake Tahoe. For a few years, during the gold rush the town had several thousand residents, it then began a long, steady decline until the town was eventually abandoned in the 1940’s. It was left to the elements until it was designated as a state park in 1962. The buildings have been left just as they were found and they’re not maintained at all so it’s absolutely fascinating to see everything just as it was left in the 1940’s, when the last residents left. We loved it!
