The sun broke through the clouds as we departed the famed ghost town of Bodie. Extensively chronicled in the lore of the Mother Lode, Bodie, which was discovered in 1859 by William Bodey, grew to a population of nearly 10,000. Boasting 65 saloons, banks, a newspaper, and a red light district, the town quickly attained a reputation for what now defines the Wild, Wild West.
