America: Vernal, Utah (6)

An abandoned swing set in a field. Tracks from farm equipment run past it on either side. In the background there is an asphalt plant, one of the industries that has risen alongside the mining operations that dot the landscape in this region. Each impacting the landscape in irrevocable ways.
