This story from CBS News focuses on the ghost town of Bodie, California. Check out what was happening there in the 1870's, and some of the people who lived there. It gave me a few story ideas. Doesn't it sound like the kind of place where two pretty good bad men might visit?

Interesting, RosieAnnie.
It's hard to imagine that a mining town can grow so quickly to such proportions. Also interesting that they say the women were among the big money-makers. A pity the article did not go into more detail (saloon girls, dance-hall girls, prostitutes,...).
It sure sounds like the boys' kind of place. 70 saloons, imagine all the poker games for Heyes...

Fantastic article, RosieAnnie. I love the iron lions supporting the pool table and the baby coffin with a window to show the face is a new one on me!
