Bodie is a suprisingly well-preserved gold rush era ghost town in eastern California.  Miners came to Bodie to look for gold and the town grew rapidly in the late 19th century.  Life was rough in old Bodie-- at an elevation of more than 8000 feet (2500 meters), winters were harsh with temperatures regularly dropping to 20 degrees below zero farenheit (-30 deg. C) with scorching summers.

Modern Bodie is a well-preserved and managed tourist attraction, visited by crowds of people from all around the world.  A unique and beautiful location, Bodie is an excellent stop on any road-trip through the American West.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
