I almost threw this picture away.
I found it in Grandma G's album of a road trip she and Grandpa G took in 1981.
The shot was taken next to a road ...
Somewhere in the Southwest US.
It looked rather boring and plain.
Then I looked closer. At the little windmill in the center. At the dry creek bed, and the tire tracks going up the hill behind ...
I noticed the sagebrush and imagined the scent ...
Then I noticed the split beam guardrail. Wow. No metal here!
I decided this is a picture worth keeping.
And scanning to share on Jane's "Vintage Weekly"!!!
