"Once There Was a Rainbow" a sketch from Bodie, California

Happy St. Patricks Day!  I imagine this spot was the end of the rainbow and a pot of gold for the gold rush miners.  This is where the Bodie Bank stood.  In 1916 the bank was robbed by four men who got away with $4,000 in money and jewelry.  The bank was destroyed by fire in 1932.  All that remains today is this vault.

Wow, what a story! It reminds me of all the places Butch Cassidy visited and robbed in Patagonia.
I am sure there was a peaceful rainbow in this place.
I specially like the way the grass melts with the green on the back.
