Ghost Town - Captain K-man visits Bodie


One of our favorite spots is the ghost town Bodie. This abandoned mining town in the Eastern Sierra is just over Tioga Pass from Yosemite. David and I loved the area so much that in 1996 we were married at the historic Mono County courthouse a few miles away (photo found on the web).

Captain K-man enjoyed feeling the rough texture of the old wooden buildings and banging on the wire gates. He unfortunately ended up with a few souvenirs in the form of splinters in his little fingers, but it didn't seem to bother him. How many 6 month old babies can say that they've touched a ghost town?

The ghost town is a photographer's mecca and while Kelton was hanging with Dad I got lots of time to explore the textures of Bodie with the camera.

After a long day investigating the ghost town and touching everything in sight Captain K-man was ready for his bath. Our little cabin didn't have a tub so he got to use the sink. After his relaxing bath he got to watch some TV with dad.
