From the Southwest 'Cowboy' series. Image from the Historic stockyard in Magdalana, New Mexico. I am capturing the real cowboy life and the ways of the wild west that still can be found in the Southwest. These cowboys I am capturing don't tweet, Instagram or Youtube, there to busy pushing cattle to the sweet land.
In 1884, the village of Magdalena was named after Magdalena Peak when its post office opened. Magdalena was incorporated as a town in 1913, during a mining boom.
Magdalena is known as the "Trails End" for the railroad spur line that was built in 1885 from Socorro to Magdalena to transport the cattle, sheep wool, timber and ore. Thousands of cattle and sheep were driven into town (cowboy style) from the west, using the historic "Magdalena Trail". This stockyard driveway was used annually, from 1885 through 1916, when the driveway was officially designated by law through the signing of the "Grazing Homestead Act". It remained continually in use through 1971. The original stockyards are still intact. This is still very much the wild west...
