Along the way are many old structures that are left to the weather to bring down rather than human hands. Some of them exist for as long as I can remember, a testament to their structure, materials, and the knowledge of craftsmen so long ago. The piece of ornate metal above was found in the structure below.
It's been left to stand, in all it's crumbling glory, since I was a small child.
