Ruins of a barn in Champs Flat, California. According to the USGS 7.5' topo, this was "South Cow Camp." There are still what look to be functioning cattle pens and loading chutes here, but all the buildings have fallen into ruin. I suspect their heyday was in the latter 19th-early 20th century, after the country had been settled but before the automobile, when people still had to stay out for extended periods. Nowadays the ranchers just show up with trucks to load the stock.
