I came across this scene of some tires on top of the mesa while doing a little lunch hike. This pile of tires is visible from all around the mesa which is a beautiful open space area. There is more trash around (old oil cans, car parts, mining remnants, etc.) from an era when people did not really care, but most are not as visible as this, especially with a little hiking trail leading right next to it. This is on a training area of the Colorado State Patrol. They must test tires there. Anyway, I like the scene for its visual qualities, but dislike the dumping of stuff in this beautiful place. I converted to black and white because of the added drama.
