Two Views Tell Bodie Story

Bodie ghost town is kept in arrested decay. There were so many unanswered questions. Every time I looked through windows I saw people's lives, frozen. It was like walking into a game of "red light, green light" where no one ever came back to shout, "Green light!" In this case, people left their locked houses and businesses thinking they would return when the gold mines opened again.
