I just got back from a trip to Pueblo, Colorado with my father-in-law, who was picking up some darkroom equipment there. When we were done with business, we headed west out into the mountains and stumbled into a wild little town called "Guffey" -- population 26. Guffy has, no doubt, one of the more amusing Wikipedia entries out there -- it's definitely a town with a sense of character, even if that character seems straight out of Northern Exposure.
The town was littered (literally) with old vintage trucks, cars, firetrucks, wagons, you name it -- all there to complement the host of buildings still left from the mid 1800's when the town was founded. I think if a Hollywood location scout ever happens upon this place, he or she is going to make it famous. You couldn't dream up a set this elaborate.
This photo has been post processed a bit, as you can see from the sky, mostly by burning it down, down, down until nothing was left but tree silhouettes.
