Greetings Lilypon, You must be the first to visit my day's hike pictures. I got up to the tram station and this "artifact" was lying on the ground. I have no idea what it is but it did weigh at least 100 pounds. I hadn't been up in there for 30 years, and the last time there was 4 feet of snow on the ground. Looked very different this time.

Cheers,

Rich

Rich you must be in fabulous shape!

When I first looked it reminded me of a pump...but on closer inspection I see it isn't. I hope someone will figure it out and let you (and us) know. :)

Greetings Lilypon, Oh contrare. It is a challenge dragging my old bod up those hills, but time is on my side. It's nice leaving the house and not having a schedule to stick to. So while others blaze up the trail, I get the luxury of stopping and catching my breath and enjoying the scenery.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Billy, Thanks for visiting mayflower Gulch and the mystery thing. I love it when I guess right. When I first saw it on the ground I thought I was seeing turbine blades and maybe it was a compressor section, but closer inspection showed folded wire mesh. I guess it wasn't important because they left it lying there. It was a fun hike and the weather kept it interesting, but not to bad. Thanks again.

Cheers,

Rich

I find this kind of artifacts' photos very interesting. In my modest opinion, It will be much more stunning with a little more of color saturation.

Looks like an oil bath type air filter system, for Truck or Tractor engines,Cheers Craig

Greetings Molineli and Craig, Thanks so much for visiting the "artifact" and commenting. This part of the gulch was still in deep shadows when I took the picture, so it is kind of flat, but I will try to boost some colors in Photoshop. Thanks for the tip Craig. I bet you are right and that's what I will call it.

Cheers,

Rich

Greetings Billy, I skipped Latin and went for Shakespeare to get the leading role in Romeo and Juliet. I got the part of the tree on the left side of the stage. Nothin's workin' for me these days, eh?

Cheers,

Rich

Gee Billy, I hadn't thought about that, but you are right. I wouldn't even have been able to get a part in the play. Oh, how pathetic am I.........

Cheers,

Rich
