    ... extracted from the ore. By 1881 the mines were depleted and by 1886 Bodie was reduced to 1500 people. By the 1940's the town became a ghost town. In 1962, the town that was left became a State Historic Park. Everything in the town was how it was when the last residents left, some still furnished and stocked.

    From the photos it may not look like much but it was a very interesting tour. What ...

The winter of the 1879 rush was a particularly *******e, and the new residents re ill-prepared to survive the blasting cold. Huge numbers died from exposure. Bodie was never a nice place to live. The gold and silver drew the miners and the entrepreneurs, but the elements (both natural and human) made Bodie a tough place to survive. It's ...

Lee Vining is not notable except for its proximity to Mono Lake, North America's second-oldest lake. Mono Lake is actually an inland sea, salty and alkaline. While five streams feed the lake, it has no outlet, so minerals that enter the lake's waters don't leave. It's 2.5 times more salty than the ocean. But what makes Mono Lake ...
