Ghost Town Bodie

Another great day of exploring around Route 395 California.
Bodie is a state park...An "arrested decay" ghost town....60 buildings from the 1850 that have not been refurbished...... very interesting history of mining....Also found some travertine natural hot springs which were glorious!

Jeff's Wedding in Brooklyn....the end of our home to live in North Carolina

Fell in love again with another part of the country....the Hudson River Valley...FDR's and Eleanor's homes. Vanderbilt home, River Valley art sites, Bard College, cute town of Tivoli

Town of Grafton and Woodstock, green Flyer Train and Billings - Marshal home and farm...and more hikes in the autumn color

Andover...Southern Vermont...HIkes, Hildene (Lincoln's son's home), Plymouth Notch (home of Coolidge and restored town from early 1900)

Smuggler's Notch in Stowe Vermont

Foggy top of Mt. Mansfield....made the hike very spooky

Every person should spend some time in New England in the fall...and they say that this year has been a moderate year for color....But we have loved it!

Will miss so many picnics and happy hours at such gorgeous spots...Chef Bob hs done a stellar job in our little kitchen
