This last photo is of "Last Chance Store" the last place where travelers could stock up before heading out into the frontier. The thought of stocking up because there are no stores beyond this point is almost impossible to imagine. Although it becomes easier if limited to gasoline. As we head further west we find the places to stock up on gas fewer and farther between. But then there is AAA to call. That may take some time but we will most likely be still alive when they get to us with a can of gas.
Back on the Santa Fe Trail of the 1800's though at that time "Last Chance" meant "Last Chance"!
