2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Mono Lake and Bodie

September 11, 2010

This is the part of our 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor road trip when things started moving fast. We were anxious to get to Yosemite but still had time to spare. So we crammed in some requisite tourist stops.

Up the hill from Mono Lake (first photo) we grabbed breakfast at the Lee Vining Mobil Station, which houses the Whoa Nellie Deli. Get anything they offer with bacon. Being that it's so close to Mono Lake, I'd avoid the fish tacos.

Then we drove north to the Bodie ghost town. Population: 0, Elevation: 8,375. Bring sunblock.

Does that look like 90 degrees and steady 15 mph winds? Take my word for it. This is where the Raptor displayed its best feature yet. Shelter from the elements.

We packed up and aimed for the Tioga Pass.
