Hmmm...what is it? If you had lived
in Bodie, California during the late 1800's, you would know that
it's part of a mine shaft hoist. Bodie is a fascinating ghost
town maintained by the state of California in a "state of arrested
decay." From Highway 395 it's at least 13 miles of bumpy,
dusty roads to Bodie, but it's well worth the drive.
