Roadtrip USA: Outdoorsy Bishop and the ghost city Bodie

Leaving Yosemite, we headed for even more outdoor fun. Bishop was our stay for the next two days.

The area around Bishop is heaven for outdoor lovers. Skiing at Mammoth, cycling, hiking, climbing. You name it - this area has it. Beautiful mountains and lakes everywhere! However we really wanted to see the ghost city Bodie just outside of Lee Vining (another cute little town). So we settled down with enjoying the mountains from the road. Really not bad that either! Especially driving with the cab down in the beautiful sun.  

And driving to Bodie sure didn't dissapoint. Bodie was first a mining town and then they found gold in the area. Around 8000 people lived there at the most. But they all moved away, person by person and the city was eventually left as it was with no people in it. It was first called a ghost town in 1915. This is a heaven for historians and photographers. We just walked around for 2 hours taking it all inn and off course did a lot of filming and photographing. You should really go there if you are in the area! But make sure you drive the right dirt road in there;) Not the old one. As we did.... Bumpy roads in a Mustang - not a good combo. 

Loved our stay in this area! And if you are ever in Bishop. Eat at Holy Smoke BBQ. Great texan BBQ! 

Next up on our roadtrip - Las Vegas!
