This old wheel reminds me of the ones used on covered wagons that brought settlers out to California. Can you imagine traveling in one of those “prairie schooners” for weeks and weeks? When we were driving across the country last summer, especially in hot, dry Arizona and New Mexico, I wondered how they stood it. How they kept from breaking.
I had a new appreciation for air conditioning and a vehicle that covered ground in hours rather than days.
Great weekend, everyone!
