Things You Find in the Field: a sleeping log

What I found first. 
I was driving a narrow winding country road looking for small Precambrian outcrops poking through Tertiary fill.  I found one and luckily there was a pull-out directly across from it.  I stopped to take photos across the draw.  Then I looked down.
What I found next (lower right).
Draws next to little-traveled roads are convenient places to dump large objects no longer wanted.  This one had a small but interesting collection.  There was the worn-out couch above, and an unidentifiable metal object I first thought was a television.
Click on image to possibly identify object.
There were several beds, or at least bedsprings.
Bed parts – lower right and just down and left of center (click on image to view).
But by far the most amazing thing I found was ...
... a log in bed!  Was it just napping?  or sawing logs?  ;-)

  2. Hilarious, if junky... I find myself wondering how many wild things harbor in the old couch that was dumped where our road peters out into a trail! It must form a fairly good shelter.

    1. good point Amy ... it would be wonderful if so-called "creepy" worms, spiders, bugs, fungi, etc. (maybe even rattlesnakes!) found this stuff useful.
