Weekly Photo Challenge:Arranged

Friends, These old corral logs and loading chute were arranged by cattlemen to load cattle into trucks.  This remnants of ranch life  appears abandoned, the fence is falling down and looks like a wild cow went through it ( sorry last week’s theme) .  There are still a great number of ranches in the badlands running cattle on the rich grasslands.   Over 1 million acres within the Little Missouri National Grassland are in federal, state and private ownerships, but all are managed by the US Forest Service. The Maah Daah Hey trail traverses the grasslands and connects the South unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park to the Northern Unit.  This trail is over 90 miles and is open to travel by horseback, bicycles or hiking.  When traveling this trail, remember to close any gates, don’t want to let the cows out, til Tomorrow MJ
