Looking for a tractor???

I found this cool old tractor near the Benton Hot Springs Hotel...
there's actually quite a bit of old cars and wagons around this area.

We were at a fundraiser dinner Saturday night for the Eastern Sierra Land Trust 
where one of the speakers was a gentleman who had grown up in Benton
 and owned a considerable  amount of property in the area...
the crux of his property is his ranch and he pledged a great deal of his property to 
open land in perpetuity...part of what the land trust is all about.
At any rate, during the course of the talk, a slideshow was playing in the 
background...I was fascinated by the town sign that 
stated...population 13 1/2....

Heck...I'm from the big city...this just boggles my mind!!!
