ghost town

This is just south of state rd 60 in NM. A town built on the railroad's stopping for cattle and fuel. When the trains could travel further and further without taking on fuel, towns like this simply died out. All that remains of this town is the loading chute for cattle and a grave yard. Everything else are scattered wooden remains of buildings.
