Retired and rusting farm truck, Yuma Conservation Garden, Yuma, Arizona

How many journeys to market
Did the old yellow truck make?
How many miles of deep potholes?
Tell me: How long did it take?

  1. This is a monument not to a flashy past, but for us to honor the quiet strength of the silent giant, one who worked not for honor and glory – but to happily serve its people and their needs…

  2. Intriguing image and questions…I wonder, what has it carried all those miles? Chickens, vegetables, farm workers, hay bales??

  3. It took a lifetime! Cheers- I love this image!

  4. This truck is like an intrpepid old soul. Can’t keep a good truck down. Great perspective.

    I’m guessing that is an International? Love old trucks!
