Town Of Ghosts: Let's Visit Bodie

Bodie is the best preserved ghost town in the United States. 

Let's join Colin Rich and Mark Bernal on their sepia tour of Bodie's abandoned homes, buildings, and the local school. 

Bodie has long been a town of tumbleweeds and empty, dusty rooms. At night the big sky parades its stars, including plenty of falling ones to wish upon.

Soundtrack is Johnny Cash's haunting Wayfaring Stranger. 

This poem by Walter de la Mare suits the mood of our virtual visit to Bodie:

Fresh Start

These little blue penguins were contaminated by oil after the Rena spill disaster. 

They were released into the ocean after being cleaned, thanks to their caring community.
