I love this picture I took years ago on top of a mountain outside Santa Fe, NM. During that time we were visiting family and was invited to the Olds Ranch. While riding towards the ranch we saw “Oscar” a 1000 pound pet pig running through the woods. Oscar had his own shed to take shelter in and to sleep and eat. You can barely see a cabin on the lower right side that was still in use and another more modern building towards the left near an old collapsed barn. My daughter and I walked up to the side of the mountain where I took this picture of this old rustic wagon. While standing there admiring the scenery we heard some bells getting closer and closer and about 3 or 4 horses came trotting by us. That was so cool! It was a good thing we did not see any bears because a year or so later we found out that ole Oscar may have been eaten by one. Also, the bear had made it’s way into the small cabin on the right (bear claws were embedded in the window frame) and tore up the cabin. I had the picture framed in a gray wooden frame with several red mats to pick up the red in the old wagon that added some depth.
