Wild Sheep Mesa Fence

Wild Sheep Mesa near Ramah, New Mexico really cannot be fenced – the strands of barbed wired at its base struggle to survive.  When rainwater drains off the sandstone face, there is so much water that moats appear around the base.  And the fences that have to withstand that rush of water are built on rock.

This is my entry in Friday Fences this week – check out the others!
