We actually had decent weather yesterday, so we drove over to Bodie. Bodie is a state park, high up on a plateau, which is an abandoned mining town. It burned a couple of times, the most recent fire being the one in 1932 which finally led to the town being abandoned. It's an interesting study of life in the late 1800's and early 1900's and there's even a school house there. This was the first time we'd been to Bodie when it had clouds. Unfortunately, it was also 90 degrees, so we only stayed for one hour (it was midday and HOT!)...We drove back to our cabin and enjoyed the squirrel and blue jays outside on the porch.
