 Frozen in Time

Frozen in Time
Abdalla Mallouk

Bodie State Historic Park, in Bridgeport, CA, is located about 60 miles north of Mammoth Lakes. Visitors are transported back in time to the late 1800s in one of the best-preserved gold-mining ghost towns, and can see how people lived and struggled in those days. It is also eerie to envision how abruptly the town was abandoned. Many structures look practically as intact as the day their occupants left.

Dr Mallouk is a Nephrologist for the Southern California Permanente Medical Group. He very much enjoys exploring and photographing the great outdoors. More of his photographs can be seen in previous issues of The Permanente Journal.
