Welcome to Dynamo Pond

Dynamo Pond is located south of Bridgeport. Take Highway 395 south for five miles. The turnoff is near the Bodie Ghost Town turnoff. Turn right on a dirt road and follow it to Green Creek. You may walk from there to Green Lake. Dynamo pond at Green Creek was the site of the first long distance commercial transmission of electricity and it was transported over a perfectly straight line. Legend says the French engineers in 1892 were positive that the electricity would run off the wire if it curved or turned. This line ran from Green Creek to the Standard Mill in Bodie.
