    Difficult to be exact.

    You'll have to do a Google Earth and have a look! I would, but don't know where it is!

    I felt quite thirsty, just looking at it!

    This is Bodie Ghost Town, California USA

    In 1859 William (a.k.a. Waterman) S. Bodey discovered gold near what is now called Bodie Bluff. A mill was established in 1861 and the town began to grow. It started with about 20 miners and grew to an estimated 10,000 people by 1880! By then, the town of Bodie bustled with families, robbers, miners, store owners, gunfighters, prostitutes and people from every country in the world. At one time there was reported to be 65 saloons in town. Among the saloons were numerous brothels and ‘houses of ill repute’, gambling halls and opium dens – an entertainment outlet for everyone.
    After the Gold Rush declined the town gradually declined and in 1910, the population was recorded at 698 people, which were predominantly families that decided to stay in Bodie instead of moving on to other prosperous strikes. The first signs of an official decline occurred in 1912 with the printing of the last Bodie newspaper. In 1917, the Bodie Railway was abandoned and its iron tracks were scrapped. The last mine closed in 1942.
