We rode through Bodie once, with (non-photographer) friends, couldn't stop for the many photo ops. :(
This is a wonderful shot, Bill.

@Judy: Thanks for your comments! Bodie is really a neat place to visit even if you are not taking pictures. I was there some 20 years ago on a photography trip and always wanted to go back. Well I finally made it.

Hey, Bill, I'm enjoying these shots of Bodie. Years ago I picked up a catalog of backpacking equipment that had been shot in Bodie. It got me interested in backpacking, which let to many, many happy miles of mountain travel. I have never forgotten those catalog photos, and have always wanted to see Bodie. I love this shot today. I hope this little church stands for many years to come.
