Bodie, CA Picture Post: buildings that would really prefer to be lying down

Bodie, CA is a National Historic Landmark, and a honest-to-goodness ghost town, just an hour north of us.  JJ and I visited when we first drove on 395 two years ago, but Mary had never been, so we kind of considered it our duty to show her this amazing spot.  Bodie is great for photography, with her structures in a state of arrested decay, and many open for perusing on the inside as well.  The vast majority of the buildings look rather like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, at a jaunty angle, and are only erect by means of the huge wooden support beams outside.  Bodie may be a bust as a gold town, but it’s a fascinating place to visit!
