The decaying wagon and pickup truck are among the many artifacts still remaining in this abandoned mining town.


Bodie, California, north of Mono Lake, is a gold-mining ghost town that once had a population of ~10,000. The small fraction of the town that survives, is now a California State Historic Park preserved in a state of "arrested decay". Reportedly, it is essentially the way it was left when the gold boom went bust. Today, other than the occasional ghosts and several park rangers who live on site the town is deserted.

Going to disagree with the judge here. I would say crop out some of the grass and give us more of the sky. The image is a bit bottom heavy. Going a touch wide for this setting would be interesting too.
