The excellent CBS Sunday Morning show had a story Oct. 26 on ghost towns in honor of Halloween this Friday. Check it out to see some ghost towns around the nation, centering on the eastern Sierra ghost town of Bodie.
That visit is still on my list of places to visit; maybe I’ll make it out there this winter or spring. The bodie.com website has a great video of the drive out to the one-time bustling gold-rush city (there were more than 10,000 people living there at its peak). It’s a California state park today.
The video says everything about the driving journey; I’m sure the relics at the town are great, but the road looks excellent!
