Thank you for your comments. Traveling at the moment, on my way to the Moab Photo Symposium, so could not answer quicker. I can't really do much about the pole in the picture. As you can see, the barb wire around the tanks is connected to it.
You know, I have passed that station so many times when I have visited northern New Mexico but have not noticed it before. There is a school on the other side of the road so I guess my attention was always directed there.
