This May Be Your ‘Last Chance’ To See This Tiny Prairie Town In Colorado
Many prairie towns grew up with the trains and died when the trains stopped rumbling through the station. Others grew up with the cattle and agriculture and died when the droughts (or Dust Bowl) hit. The little town of Last Chance, CO grew up with the automobile and died when I-70 was constructed, taking traffic on a quicker, easier route that bypassed this prairie town.
The cafes are gone. The neon lights are gone. The town is almost gone. You never know when your “last chance” to see this piece of Colorado history will be.
