If you travel backroads of the southwest, you will eventually come across an area used for ranching.  Although the cattle pen was still intact, I’m sure this was no longer a functioning ranch as everything else nearby had become dilapidated.  I found the textures of the wood and hardware interesting and managed a few shots of the area before moving on.
