For West Texas, this weather is a virtually unheard of event. Several days with temperatures in the teens, followed by several inches of snow, combined with a very rare coating of frost created a winter wonderland. The owner of Spirit Ranch heard about this print, and ended up presenting a copy to the original owner of the property at a Mac Davis - "Lubbock in my Rearview Mirror" - charity event.

A special thanks to Ron and Sharon Mouser as they invited me to shoot from the bucket of Lubbock's Ladder Truck #1 at the Cowboy Symposium in 2018.
It is easy, from watching TV shows about the old west, to think of the Chuckwagon as simply the place cowhands got their meals. Actually, this old wagon was much, much more. It actually served as restaurant, hospital, general store, and supply wagon for just about everything needed on the trail.
