Out to Pasture -


Old cars and trucks put out to pasture seem to reside everywhere, but are a bit easier to spot in the wide open west. These relics showed up on a hike into Rock Creek Canyon in Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, west of Cortez, Colorado. The trail initially skirts the park boundary and these “ancients” were sitting on the other side of the fence. The American iron was expected, but the Volvo’s were a surprise.


Wow. They really are “out to pasture!” They look like they just got parked one day and never were revisited.


Just so sad. I mean, did they put them out as “future” projects? If not… surely there’s a lot of money to be made parting those cars out if they don’t run.
