So, just what was it used for, I wonder. Lovely shot of this old, rusty antique!

@Jason Politte: The cycle trail passes several historic gold mining sites. In the 1890s, several gold mining companies erected batteries and cyanide plants and I imagine these are bits and pieces left over from the operation
very nice & interesting!!!!

It must have been a nice cycling-trip in these nice landscapes. This photo is a fine composition with the wheel in the foreground of the landscape.

@Truels: It's beautiful landscape and just wonderful to explore on bike or foot.
Idyllic place for biking or strolling through, and specially in such a wonderful day. You must have been enjoying it. Very nice series of photographs.
