The cattle industry was past its prime

A detail of the fence around the cattle pen from yesterday. It’s starting to show the signs of many years in the dry Texas heat, but I bet it’ll outlast most of us…

I’ve been to Marathon a lot, but this was the first time I spotted this abandoned cattle pen. It was built from heavy timbers, and clearly intended to last. Which it did: it evidently outlasted the cattle industry out here.

Apparently the clandestine-message industry is still going strong, which I guess is good to know.
