Ghosts, guns, & gold: Bodie revealed

Saturday 1:00 PM-6:00 PM
Trip# 349: Ghosts, guns, & gold: Bodie revealed
Description: Bodie, one of California’s most famous state parks, was known as one of the most lawless, wildest, and toughest mining camps in the West, and boasted a population of about 8,500 in the late 1870s. Join Chris, a Bodie Foundation tour guide, for a fascinating walk through town and hear stories about the characters who lived in this legendary settlement. After a 20-minute break, we’ll join Chris again for a special tour through the 124-year-old stamp mill that processed much of the gold and silver, and still houses some of the original equipment. The weather at this 8,400-foot elevation can be unpredictable so wear sunscreen and dress in layers. (est. driving miles: 62; hiking difficulty: easy to moderate)
