Ascent Trip Report

Up from bend in dirt road by tiny stream, as others have done. Went to Potato first, then over to Bodie, then down the center of the valley to the car.

I drove into Bodie SP, ranger gal said I didnt have to pay if I kept going on Bodie Masonic road and didn't stop at the parking lot.

Class 2+ at Potato, Class 1+ at Bodie.

55 up to Potato, 45 over to Bodie Hill, just 30 down to the car.

I drove 4.3 from the parking lot to the TH. When I left I drove 4.5 to the Junction with the Canyon Road, then the expected 7.8 down to Bridgeport. The road is fine, any car can do it, both up high and in the canyon. Dirt but bladed smooth and very wide. All streams are culverted.
