Bodie - California
What to do if you have little time : Bodie
Bodie is an old ghost mining town, abandoned 50 years ago. The buildings are very well preserved : wooden houses, hotel, saloon, coroner, mine, school, church ... we believe it really. We look through the window: the faded wallpaper peeling, old tools remained in bulk, school benches are deserted ...
Admission is $7 per adult for an almost complete tour (without a guide) of this ghost town. To visit the mine, which is only with a guide, you will pay extra.
Depending on wish
2 to 3 hours
Access : from Lee Vinning, Mono Lake, take 395 north for 12 miles, then 270 east for 13 miles. The last 3 miles of road 270 are quite a track. Remember to check your fuel level before taking this route because there is no gas station in Bodie.
