E30: Bodie State Historic Park

Bodie, California is an abandoned gold rush town that was founded in 1859 by W.S. Bodey. When Bodey and his gold-mining partner walked to the next town, they got caught in a blizzard. Bodey collapsed and his partner left him to die. Bodey’s body wasn’t found until the spring thaw, but his partner said that every night that winter, Bodey’s frozen corpse returned, tapping against the window asking to be let inside.
