Exploring rustic life in the early days of the west

On our way to Yosemite we stopped and toured Bodie, CA, an abandoned miner's town. After a ten year run, the gold and silver rush ended and within a year Bodie residents packed up and left everything behind, including items on the general store's shelves.
