Bodie State Park


It wasn’t on my list of things I was dieing to do, but Mr. Tattered had wanted to go for ages, so, since we were only a few hours away, we decided to pack a picnic lunch and head out.

I’m not sure what I expected, but it was certainly not what we saw!

Bodie is a preserved ghost town, a visit back into the gold rush days. What remains is but 5% of what the town was in its heyday…a bustling town of 10,000, full of the worst of the day – badmen, 65 saloons, daily murders, but it is just amazing.

It is VERY “tattered ‘n worn” so, of course I just loved it. I took nearly 200 pictures, mostly of textures – everything from bricks and wood to wallpapers coming off the walls and lots and lots of rust!

But for the purposes of this post, I’ll show you a variety, and again, let the pictures tell the story.

I have sooooo many more. I most certainly need to do something special with them. Some will become scrapbook papers, and others will hopefully make their way onto canvases!

I’ll leave with a very tired little girl…
