Bodie Ghost Town – 2

The ghost town of Bodie is located in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains. For more information on this town, see my first post of pictures from this location, Bodie Ghost Town – 1.

Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.

    • The ruination is just the slow decay of the area. My understanding is that the population were miners and prospectors who, when they decided to leave for the NEXT BIG THING just up and left, possibly without paying the rent. It was only in the 60s, years after it was a ghost town, that the State took it over as an historical site and made it into a park. It really is a neat place to go. Sadly, I only had an hour there, when I would have liked to have had a day.
