We were in Liberty, Washington in 2014 and 2016.

We were in Cashmere, Washington in 2013 and 2014.

We were in Toppenish, Washington in 2014.

It was a gorgeous, bluebird long weekend. Not a drop of rain. The sun
was really blaring at a few location stops which made photo taking difficult.
We did get a few good images though. Pretty unlikely we will ever be back
here again so we took a LOT of pictures.

These were taken with my Nikon D810 and my nifty fifty 50mm, f/1.2 manual focus
40 year old prime lens.

Occupied in early 1888, two years after Ryan and Creasor discovered the lucrative
area which became Republic's Knob Hill Mine, high quality ore was extracted, milled
and processed right in Bodie until the falling gold prices closed the township's
mine and emptied its buildings in 1934, at which time the town had functionally
relocated to the Bodie Mining Camp. An estimated US$ 1.2 million in gold was
recovered, and it's said that Bodie Creek still runs color. This scenic area, and
its related ghost towns, regularly attract historians, mining buffs, and
photographers to the slanting buildings, rusty equipment and mysterious log cabins.
There is only one intact structure remaining of the original "Old Bodie", a small
two story house converted to a storage building with the help of local resident
Doug Prichard. The largest, most visible structure still vertical in what is now
Bodie, is often cited as a schoolhouse which doubled as a saloon, but local legend
disputes the matter. Old Bodie has also been confused with an assembly of cabins
North of the Bodie Mining Camp, at the junction of Toroda Creek and the road to
Curlew, which functioned as a saw mill.
