The crane hoist looks like it was built from Erector Set pieces.
Nice photo.

Anyone know what this is?  I spotted it along the road in Farmington, New Mexico.

I think it may be the hoist mechanism that lowered and raised the elevator car in a mine.
I don't see a boiler, but it may also been the main pulley that operated all the belts for a stamp mill'.

It may be a portable well drilling rig.

My guesses were along the same lines.  It has pulleys that could be used for long lengths of cable, and the large flywheel suggested to me that the cable(s) would be starting and stopping while the rest of the mechanism continued to spin.  I couldn't tell though if the wheels and such were originally part of the thing, or added later to move it around.

Looks like the remains of a walking beam drill rig. I have photos of a very similar rig, modified and mounted on an old Chevy truck, which was abandoned in the desert near Roosevelt Well, NV and moved a few years ago to Gold Point, NV:
