Driving through the area known as North Park, in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, I spotted this old, abandoned wagon just a little ways off the highway.  The decades of its usefulness were long gone, but it was obvious that it had been well used through those years.

Abandoned Wagon of the West


There was just something about it that made you wonder about its history. Whose was it? What had been hauled with it? Just how long ago was it constructed? There were no answers, just the wind howling across the wide, open basin between the mountain ranges.
