Day 20 we started with checking out from "Bates" Whispering Pines Motel - wohoo, we survived 😳💪😬. Set the gps on Bodie, a ghost town 1 hour from June Lake. Bodie was a goldmining town where golddiggers from all the world came to ftom 1859 until 1940's when the last man left. At it's prime time 1877-1881 more than 8.000 people lived and worked in Bodie, but time, fires, earthquakes and harsh weather has destroyed much of the town where only 5% of the buildings remains. It was quite interesting to walk among the old ruined houses and listen to the park guide talking about Brodies glory days. It was a bit difficult to "see" all the 200 salons, jail, bank, school, miners, gun men and prostitutes who all lived here 130'ish years ago and today it us all empty.
After the historical lesson we started our trip to south Lake Taho. A lot of mountains in Sierra Nevada to climb and get down from, but after a few hour we got there. My first visit to Lake Taho, and to be honest it is a combination of a more posh Vegas & and youth campus. 😁. Music, bars and casinos everywhere 🎶🇺🇸☀️. One of the things on what to do was to go to sn american cinema, so tonight was the night and we saw Spiderman and topped it off with take-away pizza 😍. Tomorrow we will take a morning dip in our pool before having breakfast, coffe, juice and waffles 👍😬. Heading towards our last night snd day in California for this time, we will visit an old school friend from highschool years, Ulf, who moved over here from Arentorp to work as a real trucker, any boys hot dream. The gps will be set for Ulf Emanuelsson in Patterson, 90 min outside Sacramento. It will be so fun to meet him snd his family after 35+ years 👍😬🇺🇸🇸🇪
