Sunday, June 21 was going to be the last day that Yosemite 1 and Yosemite 2 were going to be together before debriefing at the end of the season. Moose and Roxanne had a great day planned for us.
After breakfast each crew loaded into their own transportation and headed east together out of Tuolumne Meadows. Down through Tioga Pass. Take a left at 395. Drive north past Lee Vining…with a stop at Mono Lake, of course! Continue on out to the real boonies to a real California ghost town…Bodie!
Bodie was a mining town in the high deserts south of Reno in the late 1800s. It went through a cycle of booms and busts until it the last mine closed in 1942.
The town site is now a California State Historic Park. The building stand pretty much as they were left. Most of the building are closed to visitors, but you can look in through most of the windows. Of course, there is a gift shop.
