"F" is for furniture~Bodie, CA~ABC Wednesday 022410






















Once again, I have returned to Bodie, CA for a weekly meme theme! I just LOVE that place! We drove by Bodie during the Valentine's Day weekend (I had 4 days off school!), but the road, DUH...was CLOSED due to snow. I mean, who wants to plow 14 miles of road to Bodie? And, 9 miles are dirt road. We did notice that it was partially open, to allow the ranchers access to Highway 395, so that they could get out. So, these photos are from our August 2009 trip to Bodie. Several of the houses there were left intact, with their FURNITURE. And, if you go, be sure to visit the church and school. Bodie is a real "blast to the past" and there are so many different buildings to see! We were there twice and we still didn't see all of the town. ABC Wednesday for February 24, 2010.

Oh, I'd LOVE to see Bodie! A photographer's dream and such history inside with all the furniture and wallpaper intact!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

I love photos steeped in history. These make me imagine the family that belonged to this house. Such a different place in time from where we are now. Thanks for sharing a little bit of history.

I've visited a handful of abandoned places, but so few have furniture left. This is so very cool. Thank for the tour of this house. I can't wait to check out Bodie.
