Last Chance Module Array Guide

Colorado Daytrip Roadtrip Series

Last Chance Module Array Guide

 
Sitting in a random field just outside of Last Chance, Colorado sits the Last Chance Module Array, an installation placed by M12 Studio to evoke thoughts about our relationship with the environment and the areas around us. Looking like deconstructed rural planning grids, they sit under the bright blue sky on wide open plains. This exhibit doesn't seem to be too well known so you will most likely be there by yourself. Follow this guide to make sure you have a good time!

How To Get There:

From Denver take I-70 to Byers, CO, make a left onto 36 and stay on that until you reach the four-way-stop in Last Chance. From there take a right and two miles down, on your left, will be the exhibit (39.712378, -103.591715 — this is the exact location). It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get there. 

Parking:

We parked on the side of a dirt road that leads to the cell tower and no one said anything. Just avoid parking on someone's private property. 

Be Prepared:

There is no path. You will be walking through high grass and there are low-to-the-ground cacti in a lot of places. Wear long pants and shoes with a thick bottom (maybe even boots if you've got them). Don't forget a water bottle and sunscreen — it's about a 7 minute walk through the field but just in case you stay for a while. 

Additional Stops:

Strasburg Family BBQ

On your way to Last Chance, grab lunch here. The pulled pork is tender and the garlic bread is A+.

What's The Scoop, Limon

Once you've seen all there is to see in Last Chance head south to Limon for an ice cream sundae. It's the perfect way to end your adventure before heading back to Denver.
