Last Chance

Last Chance is a tiny town without services. However, it does have a rest stop backed by a small city park, and the grove of trees there is a legendary stopover spot for exhausted migrant birds traversing the dry treeless plains. Don’t drive past it without stopping in spring and fall–you never know what you might find.
