Moving to Bodie???






"Good-bye God...I'm going to Bodie!"
excerpt from the diary of young girl who's family moved to Bodie



This is the Methodist chuch in Bodie...
As I mentioned yesterday...Bodie was a rough town...
but it's my understanding that Bodie also had quite a number of churches in its heyday...

The quote is an actual quote from a little girl's diary.
She wrote it upon learning from her parents that they were moving to Bodie...
The town was such a rough town that she interpreted it as
being doomed to a Godless town.

Another Stop in Bodie...





"Gold, gold, gold..."
Sam Brandon


These words started the stampede that was to become known as the California Gold Rush...
Bodie was a bustling city back in the early 1900's...
although it was a bit rough around the edges...
lot's of murders, robberies, houses of ill repute...
but then...those miners needed to have fun!!!

Our Little Corner of the World...




...is starting to melt!!!


This is Lake Mamie...next to Lake Mary, on the way to Horseshoe Lake...
We're in between seasons...it's not like the kind of Spring you find in lower altitudes...
with flowers everywhere you turn...
There are flowers in town, and in spots where the snow is melted already...


This is Lake George...and yes...Kelly is swimming with ice still covering the majority of the lake...


...and what better way to dry off than to wriggle in the snow patch???


"Time will pass and seasons will come and go."
