Eastern Sierras, Mono Lake, and Bodie Photography

On a recent photo trip to Bodie State Historic Park, James took pictures along Highway 395.  Stops included Owens Valley, Virginia Lakes, Mono Lake, the mountains above Bridgeport.  Bodie is the largest ghost town in America with over 100 buildings that are in an ‘arrested decay.’  During the gold rush of 1879, it was once the second largest city in California behind San Francisco. James had special access to video and photograph the interior of many buildings as well!  Check out the photos…
