One of the sites on our itinerary is Bodie, a mining ghost town. Bodie was previously known as the roughest town in the west, and enough survives of it to see what life was like here. Best of all, though, if the birding gods are smiling on us, it's a prime spot to find Greater Sage Grouse. If we don't succeed, we may have to comfort ourselves with a Brewer's Sparrow.
