ARCHIVE TRIP TO BODIE


 Some friends have posted photos of their trips to Bodie. CA.

 It got me thinking about our trip a few years ago.

Some of you will have seen these before

But

I hope you will enjoy them again.



The Ghost Town made me into a "Snapping Fool".




Rusty and falling apart always capture my attention.




This was such a booming town in its day.











Thanks for looking.

Have a great weekend.

Rusty and falling apart.......perhaps we need a photo shoot of me....HaHa. There are days I do feel that way. I love the fence post and barbed wire....my favorite.

These are great to see. I bet a bunch of photographers could be set loose in Bodie and very few would come back with pictures of the same thing taken in just the same way. Your photos at a great example of that. I too like that shovel shot. Hope you show more.

So this was a big thriving town and then something happened such as the mine or the mill closing and everyone moved away? I'll have to google it.
