Round Robin: Gates of the West

For this week's Round Robin Challenge: Gates, Carly asked to see any kind of Gates. I just did an entry about Gates Pass, the gateway between the city of Tucson and Avra Valley, where Old Tucson and the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum are. But let's see what actual gates I've photographed. I haven't had time recently to go after this properly, but I'm sure I can come up with something!

This is the gate behind which Old Locomotive 1673 is usually locked up, down at the Historic Depot in downtown Tucson. Check out my Facebook page for a shot of me and my dad inside that same gate.

This sign is at the gate to the dog park between my house and my dad's place.

Here is the gate to the Rose Test Garden in Reid Park, taken March 9th, 2013. It was too early for the roses to look like anything much.

This one is Gate B8 at Tucson International Airport, 12/26/12. Exciting, huh?

I've used this shot before, but I like it too much not to include it here. It's a Tohono O'Odham maze design on a gate at Mission San Xavier del Bac.

Here's a late addition. Carly's entry reminded me of this very old shot, from 1986:

Cows at a cemetery gate, at a dead-end stretch of road where Route 66 used to be. And finally, there's this:

The St. Louis Arch - Gateway to the West! This is also from the 1986 trip.

Now let's see what gates the other Robins have photographed!
