Bodie was a boom town, Thousands flocked to Bodie to mine for gold. Only 5% of the original town is left. A fire came through and destroyed most of the town and everyone left. Today it is being preserved but not rebuilt.

Aurora has the same story, but it is in Nevada and not protected like Bodie. Aurora has been destroyed by fire and Vandals. Aurora is still producing small amounts of ore.

In the first pics is a pic. of a old railroad grade and ties. That was the Benton-Bodie RR, over a 100 yrs old and the RR ties are still there.

No it is about 250 miles to the north. It is by Bridgeport and Lee Vining.

Great share...
last year a few friends and I went up to the Panamint Range near Death Valley, it was a great experience. We had two vehicles, a 4Runner Limited and a Grand Cherokee. Both mostly stock and they didn't miss a beat.

Nice Pics

I will be up there next week. I'm planning for Bodie on tuesday. Is there a trail from Bodie to another mine?

Any other good trails in that general area?

Thanks
