Last two of this mini-series.
Interest has waned, but I hope a few are interested in seeing my interpretations of this wonderful Old West Mining Town.

Love the framing in the first one. General question for you, Charlie: are the photos you post from recent trips, or are these selected from treasure troves of old trips that you're just now scanning?

Thank you, gentlemen (or lady? ).
An occasional few kind words of encouragement keep many of us posting- even the codgers among us ..
These are (un-recent ) slides from a closet full of slides and film negs.
I shot film for a great many years, but my travel days are of the past.

Bodie is one of those timeless places (they officially call the thing they are doing there "arrested decay"). My photos from the 80s and early 90s look very much the same as those I took there last August. The buildings seem to hold up better than the cars, though, except for that blue Dodge, which still has paint and glass.

I like the images with snow - few people venture to this remote location when the weather isn't great.

Nice to keep us traveling along Charlie! I love rustic shots, weathered wood and patina ridden metal A ghostly charm to these both and a chill!

Thanks PB, Tree, Karl and Tim.
Snow is rare in Bodie (even though it's about 8,000 feet), and when snow gets high enough to obstruct the dirt roads leading into it (I don't think they plough), you pretty much need a 4X4.
I was there one time when there was some snow, but the dirt road from 395 was clear.
The older I get, Tim, the more I appreciate old stuff.
When the truck stops working, I'll get a newer one .
