Smoked Potato  Sucess!

I hiked up Bodie on 7-27-18, but didn't have time for Potato. This time I climbed Potato and just waved at Bodie. A warm summer morning, actually not too smoky.

Bodie & Potato   Sucess!

My wife and I decided to visit de Bodie gost town. But wait, there is more! Thanks to the great page these guys created recently, we drove on an SUV all the way to the bottom of Bodie Mountain. Hiked both peaks in two hours car to car, on a teribile wind. Fun though.

Potato and Bodie  Sucess!

On the way to Mammoth, stopped off to bag Potato and Bodie, then hiked Mammoth Mountain later in the afternoon. Easy peaks, the gravel road is fine for 2wd leading to about 2 miles from each peak.

From the Ghost Town  Sucess!

Potato and Bodie from the Ghost Town proper. (Could have saved half the distance by driving up the ranch road rather than hiking it)

Astoundingly snow free winter this year.

Pics and commentaty are here.

4x4 Road  Sucess!

After a visit to Bodie SP, took the dirt 4x4 road up Bodie Mountain and then over to Potato Peak, not much elevation gain left to summit both peaks. Great views. Headed down the north side of Potato Peak and on out to Bridgeport. Lots of cool mining remains in the area.

From Rough Creek  Sucess!

A small young black bear was romping around through the brush below the peak!
