Vacation 2008–Bodie Ghost Town

Vacation 2008--Bodie Ghost Town

Bodie is the famous mining town turned ghost town just east of Highway 395 about 12 miles south of Bridgeport.  I left Honeymoon Flat early, hoping to see Bodie and still make good time into Yosemite so I could get a good campsite there.  I wasn’t prepared for Bodie’s size–I expected a few dilapidated buildings, but there were more than a few.  I didn’t end up leaving until almost noon.

The road to Bodie, Highway 270, is 6 miles of pavement and 3 miles of rough dirt, but I was not the only motorcycle to go the distance.  It was worth the visit and I wished I’d had more time.
