The two best fences in Pinos Altos, New Mexico

(Last Updated On: October 17, 2018)

Pinos Altos, New Mexico, feels like a rough and not-necessarily-welcoming old west town, but with a weird artsy edge. It’s a place where you might find an artistic display of found objects with a “no trespassing” sign (complete with smoking gun) posted in front of it. I tried to enjoy these displays without getting too close.

Although there were a number of unusual and intriguing fences in town, two stood out.

One had two distinct sections, one made up of giant logs with an equally giant tire embedded in them and another comprised of old metal signs.

Although clearly a fence, the second is a little hard to recognize as such from my pictures, as it consisted of a rather spread out display of odd-shaped dry wood, rocks, bottles, and other collected objects.

The car wasn’t exactly part of the fence, but almost. It certainly fit in.

Hi Cindy, I liked the artsy edgy feel that you captured in Pinos Altos. There’s defintiely a beauty to be found in something old and out of commission:)

Great photos Cindy. Actually all of your travel photos are incredible. I am visiting Mexico on a cruise in about 10 days time, but will only be seeing the port of calls. I am particularly interested in Mexico and would probably like to explore it a little further in the future.

Love pictures of old cars and trucks!

That old worn wood is great. What’s in the bottle in the last photo?

Looks like you were in red neck country! 🙂 Thanks for linking up this week. #TPThursday
