12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A young boy wanting to explore the brush country beyond the fence.

A young boy with his boots and blue jeans on climbs a fence on the King Ranch in south Texas. Like many young boys, he dreams of being a cowboy. This ranch comprises more than 800,000 acreas and is rich in western and spanish heritage. Cowboys oversee thousands of cattle and horses that run on the ranch. The older boys enjoyed a late afternoon dove hunt on the other side of this fence by the stock tank while this boy watched from a distance.
