Jul 16, 2011 - Bodie

On my way south, I visit the Wildest Camp in the West, or rather the remains of Bodie - a genuine California gold mining ghost town. Only about five percent of the buildings it contained during its 1880s heyday still remain - it stands just as time, fire and the elements have left it. Designated a state historic park in 1962, it is now maintained in a state of "arrested decay". And now my comrades all are gone; Naught remains to toast. They have left me here in my misery, Like some poor wandering ghost.
