Generally as all the water rights have been sold to the Denver area the La Junta area has dried up. That station is too recent for dust bowl days.

The station is literally in the middle of nowhere.It's 25 miles from Walsenburg and 35 miles from La Junta.I wondered if CO 10 used to be more of a major road with a lot more traffic.Apparently,there was enough traffic at one time to support the gas station and a cafe.

Been watching this thread for 6 months.
Waiting for my new bike and then 2 weeks after I got it, 3 months for a nasty injury to heal... Flesh eating bacteria.
(Keep those wounds clean)
Time for some mud wrastlin'

Welcome. Good job. I think we can let it slide this time, but for future note, the idea is to replicate the tag photo, at least enough to be easily recognized. Now ride! And get us a new tag!

If you zoom way in. You can barely read the sign in this one.
I just liked the "smelly" sign and the other sign in the background describing the place.
Thanks for the heads up...

I told the little zombie girls it may be a day or two before a tagger showed up. The first couple of kids I saw looked like they tangled with the gators! I asked and they said they were dressed as zombies for "Gator Fest".
