Bodie! California's official ghost town (well, for gold mining anyway, but that is a story for another day). When I encounter people visiting from out of the country in Mammoth, I always recommend a visit to Bodie. It's just not the kind of place you see elsewhere.

Oy, I love old ghost towns ... especially ones so full of rich history and great stories. I've got a dozen or so books about it, and they are all fascinating. Did you take the tour of the stamp mill?

I don't either, but the USS Iowa has an interesting history - explosion in 1989 which was rumored to be a ****sexual sailor's suicide/terrorism attack. Investigators found the cause, but not the explanation.

Just got back from two-weeks of touring in MT and ID. On my rest day I took a short out and back ride into the woods outside of Yaak, MT, and saw this little bugger. Most exciting.

On my ride today, I saw a mommy moose with her twin babies, but couldn't get phone out quick enough to take picture before she and babies ran across the highway and into the woods. However, I did see this about 5 miles later.

Drive a few miles east, a whole new Washington - brown. Actually most of the State is east of the Cascades.


Hardly any cars on a Monday
