I've posted another image from Bodie a while ago. The town of Bodie in California used to be a flourishing mining community, until the last person left 50 years ago. It seems like they left with the intention to return one day, many buildings contain furniture and personal items. It is a pretty setting high on a plateau in the mountains, and when we visited it was covered with a dusting of snow...

This used to be the Bodie school. Like many of the buildings in Bodie that still have personal belongings scattered around, this class room looks like the children have just left for recess. Only a small part of the town survived, preserved in a state of "arrested decay." Interiors remain as they were left and stores are still stocked with goods.
