Bodie State Park

It’s a chilly late-October afternoon in Bodie.

Windows reflect the bright sky even after the buildings are shaded
by the hills west of town.

It’s time to pull up a comfy chair and watch the sunset.

In the cemetery this year, the park has been rebuilding old-style wooden fences around some of the graves that needed better protection. The new wood is still bright, but it will darken over the coming year.  Bodie State Park

Many of the older iron fences still remain.
