Bodie Ghost Town

Scenic View

Continuing on with our day road trip on the scenic highway, we come to Bodie, an old mining ghost town. 

The road passes right through this abandoned town, so access is very, very easy. 

If you are expecting entertainment and tourism, then this is not your town.  But if you have imagination and love the old west, then you’ll enjoy exploring here.  It is a western photographer’s dream.


 There are a lot of untold stories in the ruins.  The buildings are not restored; they are in various degrees of dilapidation.  If you are finicky, then you won’t want to explore because of bird and packrat droppings.  It is what it is.
