"Bodie State Historic Park" California Things to Do Tip by richiecdisc

California Things to Do: 1,034 reviews and 1,974 photos

  scenic Bodie is great for photography
by richiecdisc

The ghost town of Bodie captures the imagination of anyone that has seen a photograph of its deserted streets and timeless old buildings and artifacts. But unlike many things that permeate our minds so strongly in images, seeing it in person does not disappoint. Maybe that is because the place is so damn photogenic. It is hard to take a bad picture here. But more likely it is because for many, these images are so intrinsically connected to fantasies that they played out in childhood and who does not want to return there sometimes?

Directions: Way on the east side of the Sierras, if in Yosemite, you still have a bit of a drive!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
