We Say Good-bye to Bodie


The entrance station which is greatly protected from being smashed into by the distracted tourist driving a motorhome.  The boulder will stop you on a dime.

The long dirt road leading into and out of Bodie.  You can see why a driver might not be paying attention.  After miles and miles of this, you see the town; "Finally we're here! Ooo...look at that!"
>CRASH<

Me, I enjoy the scenery wherever I am.  
Here the Sierra mountain range in the distance provides a wonderful view.

Love the view at the Sierra mountains, so wonderful. I am always excited to see mountains, maybe because we don''t have them here.

Indeed difficult to keep your attention on the road but it looks very beautiful.

I found the Brodie series fascinating. Well done.

I see people that live on corner plots install big boudlers to stop people from cutting through the edge of their yards.

That's quite a boulder at the entrance!

That boulder would put a dent in your plans!

Worryingly that boulder looks quite battered. Lovely scenes, as ever.

Just as I finally get back online you are leaving Bodie. I have loved all of the pictures and have thought how much I would finally like for bud and me to hit the road and see our own beautiful country. That boulder was a cool move on part of the part staff.
