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.


  1. It was already a big problem and it will only getting stil bigger.

  2. When there is no water , there is always a beer...

  3. It took determined people to make a life there!

  4. I cannot imagine having to live without an abundance of water!
