Abandoned old Gold Mine of the Wild West in Bodie, California

Travelled there this past summer. The last 6 miles involved driving through mountains on a dirt road. The car will need a wash after that but the place was totally worth it.

all very nice captures that represent the area very well, I found it amazing that so much was left there after the mines played out. Thanks for sharing.

Yep, this is about 10% left of the original town.

I love the shots. I can see so many photo opportunities there a week wouldn't be enough to explore and photograph everything.

You really captured the feel of an old town. The payroll example was really interesting. I am going to apply for a job as a pump man as he seems to have made the most.

Based on the condition of the building in #3, soon to be about 9%. It looks like one of those places, if you want to see it, you'd better go soon. Thanks for posting.

What a cool series - almost eerie in a way. Very nice job.
