Wagon Wheel and a Texas Gate -- Saskatchewan Ranch Land

Val Marie, Saskatchewan, Canada: This is ranch land, where a drive through the countryside means rattling across Texas gates designed to keep cattle from moving on down the road.

Many have old wagon wheels propped on either side of these gates — a reminder of this history of this part of North America.

One gate we drove over used old rails from a train track to form the metal grid, while yellow-rimmed wagon wheels rested on each side.
