A Dream Come True...Not Quite.

For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to find a rifle or six-shooter in the desert that had been lost by a pioneer, prospector or cowboy.  On this hike I briefly thought "Yes!" then realized it was just a child's toy.  It'll probably be as close as I'll ever come to my dream find.

On another hike not that far off, less than a quarter of a mile I came across this.

I wonder if the owner of this tricycle lost his toy gun.


  1. Just keep looking, I'm sure your dream will come true eventually!

  2. I think they both belonged to the same boy.

  3. I found an old revolver where my dad was breaking some new land for cropping. It was well rusted. the family has kept this relic.
