The road to Bodie, California, is right in the middle of nowhere, it's just you and the mountains surrounding you. It goes for about 9 miles on a very bumpy asphalt road, then you'll reach a sign warning you about very rough conditions for the next 3 miles. And at the end of this stretch you'll have to leave your car here and go on by foot for another 2 miles.
The walk, however, is very rewarding. After some hills the landscape opens and gives a spectacular view on the ghost town. It is amazing to see how many people once lived in the middle of nowhere, and what it was like to be in the wild west during America's gold rush time. At its peak, Bodie had a population of about 10,000 people. Even for someone who is not all that interested in American westerns, gold mining etc., it is a fancinating place with a lot of history.
Going to Bodie brings you back a hundred years. The town is in pretty good condition for the rough Sierra Nevada climate.
