Relics outside Casa Grande Trading Post, Los Cerrillos

For this post we are returning to the Casa Grande Trading Post in Los Cerrillos. As I showed you in the first post, along the walls of the store was an amazing array of rusty mining relics and farm implements from the bygone days of Cerrillos.  Rust, dust and general decay – an HDR photographer’s dream come true.  I made so many images in the area that I had to return and show you some more.
