This week I visited the abandoned mining town of Bodie, CA. Bodie was a gold mining boom town in the 1800s that shared some similar characters to Cerro Gordo.
Bodie was taken over the the State of California in 1962 and has since remained in a state of ‘arrested decay.’ I went there this week to learn a bit more about the town, it’s caretakers, and the efforts they go to in order to preserve Bodie. There is a lot to learn from the experience at Bodie that I can translate back at Cerro Gordo!
If you aren’t already, I hope you’ll considering subscribing to this channel. Each week I put out a video about my restoration and exploration efforts here at Cerro Gordo.
