Out of its element

This shot is mostly for fun as opposed to something with real artistic merit.  I had gone to the top of a ski mountain in Red River, NM and was wandering around looking for inspiration, which isn't really that hard when you are about 10,000 feet up.  Anyways, I came across this huge machine and just thought the idea of this being at the top of a mountain was interesting.  I understand that it was needed for some work they were doing, but how in the hell did they get it up there?  Drive it?  That would take days.  On the back of a large truck?  That would never make it on the narrow mountain passages.  Anyways, there it was...and I found it interesting.
