Go help her saddle up the mules, Frank, and we'll enjoy your view here. I'm so glad no one decided to cart off this relic. It sure adds to the image.
Frank L Croston.: She can cope, Ginnie...It added to the atmosphere alright.
the mormon trail better with mules, indeed Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Right, Juan Carlos,way too bumpy.
Mules are no good to chase after stagecoaches, look what happened to this one.Someone beat you to it,swap native guide for a fast horse.
Frank L Croston.: About the robbery...Send lawyers guns and money,the s**t has hit the fan! ( Lyrics by Warren Zevon) smile

Are you taking this wagon? Watch out for attacks from "them thar injuns"!
Frank L Croston.: No,just the Mules,no worries,they are too busy selling jewellry. smile
Looks like a Conestoga wagon... the b/w is a nice touch...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry,too small for a Conestoga I think,listen to me? smile I only know 'cos I looked it up. smile
I do hope this is an original, it looks to be in a nice setting. Chris is showing his age, Wagon Train, fancy remembering that.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian,'Wagon train', never heard of it...smile
hahaha Frank...just like the movie Frank! be careful of the snakes!
Nice image btw
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke. Don't mention SNAKES!!
Looks like you gave it a touch of infra-reds, Frank. Hope you are accustomed to mule rides smile
Frank L Croston.: It does look like that, Tom,I'll give it a go.
Love your treatment for this, Frank. I'm guessing the past relic was placed there by the officials of the park.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Beverley,it may have been,there was an old tractor as well,you can just catch a glimpse of it there.
