Bodie is a gold mining ghost town in California, USA, located in the eastern Sierras at an elevation of 8380 feet (2550 m). It prospered from 1865-1890. Back then Bodie had the reputation of being one of the most furious, violent and lawless towns in the West.
What’s left today stands in a state of “arrested decay” and is maintained as a National Historic Landmark by the Bodie Foundation.
If you like to visit Bodie, be aware that it can be very cold and windy up there. I went there in the first week of June and froze my ass off.
