|An Americana - Bodfish, California|
Bodfish, California is a tiny town in the southern Sierra Nevada mountains, right next to Lake Isabella. It was first settled 1867 during the gold rush. The town survives as a "suburb" of the larger (but still small) town next door. Tourism is the largest local industry.
The town of Bodfish is quite poor. The median household income is less than 35% of the state's median household income. Many residents live in manufactured homes, and many of those are aging.

Yet in that aging there is beauty. The brokenness creates interest. There is hope in what might be a hopeless place, if for no other reason than this is America.
