Summer is a green time of the season
along the spine of the eastern Sierras. Besides the main
location shoot at the ghost town of Bodie, other locations will include Mono Lake, the Twin Lakes,
Lundy Lake for landscapes and wildflowers.
Bodie State Historical Park is one of the best preserved gold mining
ghost towns in the American West. Founded in 1859, with a
population of 10,000 at one time, the remaining buildings that
weren't burned in town fires are kept in a state of "arrested
decay". The old cemetery, Methodist Church, period homes like
the Donnelly house and Cain house, as well as dry goods stores, the
city jail, firehouse, and others ... with much of their interior
decorations remaining ... make for a fascinating photography
There is some short distance walking involved with this safari,
especially at Bodie, but it is not excessive. We shoot the lakes and
foothills of the eastern Sierras, including the Mono Lake area.
We meet in Bridgeport, California on Highway 395.
While this is usually a warm time of the year, mornings can be
chilly so layered clothing is essential. I will have some room
