Gold In The Boreal Brake by WayneBenedet Gold In The Boreal Brake by WayneBenedet
Completely hidden from the road this, along with a few other treasures were on the yard of a retired logger. I happened across them when I stopped to ask permission to take another picture. In the discussion that followed, I was invited to walk through their yard to taste of the various pleasures of rust and decay.

My thanks to Eija for her kind hospitality.

I think red green would be proud.... though he would have used duct tape of course.

We'lljust park it here til we get around to fixin' it, right? And it has lasted the ones who parked it by decades, I would think...What a find - and what a shot!

lol... that is about it. The truck was probably used in the lumber business so many years ago. Now it is just part of the collection of old vehicles and equipment.

it is just junk. The in camera crop was pretty tight, I decided to leave it alone rather than to remove it.
