The theme for the Sunday Stills challenge is Tourist. Your not crazy, it’s not Sunday today 🙂 The challenge is open all week, why don’t you make an entry yourself? I’d love to see it! Sunday Stills, is a growing weekly photo challenge. It’s lots of fun! Why don’t you join us right from the start?
I love to be a tourist in time, in historical places. A road trip to a Ghost Town, with an exciting past, surrounded by legends, and real life stories is right up my alley.
The picturesque little town in these photos is Bodie (CA.)
Bodie is an old ”Ghost Town”. Back in 1880, around 10 000 people called Bodie their home. Their lives circled around gold mining, and the big mill. Nowadays it’s a well maintained historic park.
If I had to pick one favorite Ghost Town to visit, Bodie would be it. It’s located on the top of a hill. The surrounding nature is spectacular. It’s close to Yosemite, June Lake, and several other out of this world beautiful places.
The place is a photographers dream. The light is often spectacular. The town looks completely different depending on the season. Many of the houses are in great shape. You can walk around for hours and have a wonderful time. Or just walk through town once, on your way to one of the nearby nature attractions. Have you been there?
I hope you will show us your latest, or favorite tourist attraction. Have an awesome day!
