If you haven’t been to Bodie, you need to put it on your Must See list! It is one of the biggest ghost town with a population of 10,000 people in 1879. It was a gold and silver mining town and also a very sinful town with over 100 brothels and 70 saloons and only 30-45 attendants at each of the 2 churches in town. A lot of history is in this town and you can almost feel it as you walk down the streets peering into the windows of the abandoned houses and storefronts. This was my 5th time visiting Bodie and I finally was able to see almost all of the town and we even took a tour of the Stamp Mine (which I HIGHLY recommend!). I was so excited to bring Evan here and was afraid I would be building myself up for letdown with Evan not being too interested in it but it was quite the opposite, I think he was more excited than I even expected. He was running through the town saying “look at this. Let’s look in here. Did you see that. Let’s go over here. Come on Mommy and Daddy!!!” We spent about 3 1/2 hours walking through the town and soaking in the history and we all loved every minute of it. Even Jacob enjoyed it while he was in the baby carrier while my mother-in-law carried him, he slept the whole time!
