CIRCLE THE WAGONS!


Okay, so it's not quite that dramatic but the wagons are kind of in a circle. :)

These antique wagons are all parked in front of a hotel in my town. We used to stay here sometimes when we were looking to move down here.

I've wanted to get some shots of these ever since I saw them on our first visit. I just never have made the time to do it.


In a way I'm kind of glad I waited since they moved them to a little more natural setting. They used to be sitting near a paved path and mowed lawn. Not quite the same feel as the long grasses, brush and pine trees. :)


I'm not sure how old these are or if it is original paint or not, but I love the patina of these wagons.


Here are a few images of what must have been covered wagons. I don't know if these were traveling wagons or freight haulers. Maybe both.


This one is probably my favorite with its rusty patina, the faded paint and all the details. May have been somebody's work vehicle. Can't imagine this being my daily driver. :)


And finally the prairie dogs view of the passing wagon. :)

Thanks for looking and enjoy your day!

No shock absorbers and not much of a road for these babies :-)
