Bodie State Historical Park.

On day 2 of Nikonians ANPAT 8 our van visited Bodie State Historical Park. Bodie is one of the best preserved old mining ghost towns in California. It is kept in a state of static decay, and is a favoriate location for photographers (and location for some movies). There were lots of photographer in addition to the Nikonians group. Prior to visiting Bodie, we were told not to show Nikonians labels and make sure that we leave well before sunset because of some problems between the Nikonians van the day before and one of the State Park Rangers.
