Until about four years ago, this truck was a working piece of equipment at the local quarry. It probably still would be, if the owner were still living, and the quarry operating.

UPDATE: This old workhorse was sent to the scrapper, summer of 2012. Another old “landmark” gone forever.

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.

    Awesome shot and great color contrasts!

  • Thank you, Susan!

    It had snowed a little bit, yesterday afternoon, so everything was wet and shiny … brought up the colors quite nicely, I thought.
