Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Unusual


I love traveling – I think I mentioned this before. 🙂

I love seeing new places and mostly traveling through small obscure towns that are different from where I live. In September during a drive to the Grand Canyon, we stopped at this small little town, Chloride, Arizona,  off the main road, easily passed by and never seen by many travelers. This shop, claim office, Christmas shop, souvenir shop – all rolled in one – caught my attention.

As we ventured further along the dirt road, we saw this gas station. The unusual part of course is not a gas station in a small town in Arizona, but look closer…

Do you see the train tracks laid out around the gas station?

Not sure really how to get your car across the tracks… There are still some people living in the town, but somehow I think they may get their gas elsewhere…
