One of my favorite things to do on a road trip, is to look around in small rural towns. I especially like the fact that many of the people living on the edges of these towns use their property as a warehouse, junk yard, trash dump, gallery, etc. I'm not presenting the following photos as art, but as examples of what I'm talking about. I hope you find them as interesting as I do.
Based on the crank starter, this pile 'o junk must be pretty old.
Talk about "curb appeal."
Nobody is walking to their mailbox in this area.
Not something I'd have sitting in my yard, but who am I to critique this guy's "art?"
Occasionally you run across that gold nugget. This truck is one of them.
So is this Chevy panel truck.
I wanted so badly to look inside of this Quonset hut.
Some sort of a tractor that doesn't have wheels.
One of these days there will be people chasing me out of their little towns with clubs and pitchforks. Oh wait, that has already happened. A long time ago, me and some of my friends went to see a haunted house in a very small rural town. It actually did end up with angry townsfolk "escorting" us out of town. I'll post that story another day...
