Water must have been a precious resource in Bodie as there are no flowing streams anywhere in the high country of the eastern Sierra where Bodie is located.
Notice another prop holding up a building.
There was snow in the winters though. But that would mean firewood to melt the snow and there are no trees in the area. All timber was hauled in.
I guess they made up for it all by drinking more beer and whisky.
It was already a big problem and it will only getting stil bigger.
When there is no water , there is always a beer...
a hardscrabble life
It took determined people to make a life there!
Love that first shot.
I cannot imagine having to live without an abundance of water!
