Berlin, Nevada is another ghost town preserved in arrested decay out in the basin and range country near Gabbs. More remote than Bodie, it also includes the Ichthyosaur national monument nearby, where you can see fossil bones from a long extinct marine dinosaur which was the size of a small bus. It's an odd juxtaposition to see a large marine fossil in the midst of a dry desert.
Like so many things, it's on my list to see this summer.
