Bodie Ghost Town

Bodie Ghost Town is a California State park that is way cool, sitting at 9000 ft. elevation and 13 miles down a dirt road off Hwy 395 on the eastern side of the Sierras, you can wander around Bodie Ghost Town and get a feel for what life must have been like in 1850. It must have taken little Joe a week to get Carson City, Nevada, but you can drive it from Bodie in an hour. Take lots of water (it’s very dry- even in winter). Only maps and books are available for purchase. There is NO food or water available around Bodie Ghost Town. The last town and stop is Bridgeport if you’re traveling south on Hwy 395. for more info go to
