Recycled can be fun...and Firewise!

While I was working with Pat Frost from the Trinity County Resource Conservation Districtto assist them with an assessment of Burnt Ranch Community near Weaverville, California, we discovered a most unusual fence all around a property.  The homeowner had used bits and pieces of all sorts of scrap metal to construct his fence. 

Can you find the bicycle, saw blade, and water pipes? All of the scrap metal was sanded, welded and painted a nice silver color.  The unique design of each panel reminded me of art in a gallery.  It was certainly a unique and beautiful way to create a firewise attachment.  

See if you can name at least four everyday retired items in this fence.  Notice the little shed behind the fence, also constructed of scrap materials.
