Flying through the spaces of the border lands between CA and NV



A very nice and welcome sight was the East Walker River



With access I couldn't resist, but to take a quick dip







Love the contrast between the dry desert and these cool strips of green with babbling water



This is a special place for others as well



Never had a Jeep, but I think I understand


RIP

Back to the wide open



Looking to take a right at 4 corners

Backway into Bodie

Found my right turn

Heading back into a little altitude change

State Route 3c in NV

Bodie Road when you cross the CA Border



Real nice Jeep trail that follows the Bodie Creek

High Canyon walls, some sand, lots of rocks

Nothing too bad, but fun enough on a big bike





After maybe an hour the town begins to materialize



Very Cool






Seen it plenty on interwebs and reports...now here I am









A little game I played in Bodie was get a picture with nobody in it....there was literally hundreds of people here and through camera angles / composition I tried my best to have no person in the shots...so, if you see a person please pretend it's a ghost



























ghost














Cool stuff and the pictures don't do justice

Fantastic thread. Just read it carefully from start to finish . . .

Great family pics. Really like the hammock shots of camp. Fantastic red glow on the mountains at sunrise.

Super cool. I'll be checkin' back. Thanks!

Took Cottonwood Canyon Road out of Bodie

It dropped me via dirt onto the north side of Mono Lake

Another great RR!

Great Bodie Pics, I imagine they required a bit of patience waiting for the ghosts to amble out of the frame.

So...plenty of daylight left...my potential last minute riding partners were dropping out....you know who you are ....again I question my whole not planning plan that I do often...maybe with more notice I wouldn't be riding alone right now....although I prefer it like that sometimes (riding alone) not always....like when the big bike is upside down in a ditch I think "Man! Wish I ad someone to share this moment with?!"

So...with all this daylight I headed south

Benton Crossing to Casa Diablo? Why not?
