Words and photography by Camrin Dengel
I love seeing vintage pickup trucks around the valley. Some sport fresh upgrades or relatively new paint jobs, but most are the classically weathered workhorses of our rural lifestyle, dented and scarred with badges of use from their years in action. The different brands, years of production, and adaptations by their owners tell the stories of their past. We all see them parked at trailheads, kicking up dust on dirt roads and in open fields, rolling into the transfer station, or waiting at the stoplight in Driggs. There are too many to count, but here’s a small sample from the Pierre’s Hole area.
