A wagon wheel sits amid grass and sagebrush on the McWhorter Ranch in Benton County, northeast of Prosser, Wash. on May 18, 2012. The descendants of the man who settled the ranch in 1903 are selling the property, and state officials are hoping to buy the land to preserve shrub-steppe habitat. (AP Photo/Shannon Dininny)
