While driving in 2007 on a solo road trip from California to central Texas, photographer Ryann Ford was struck by a recurring sight: Humble, solitary rest stops. Her book, The Last Stop, does far more than capture the remarkable, effective design of our nation’s road stops. It preserves a moment in time that is quickly fading, a unique period in the American travel experience when the journey was just as important as the destination. Near Lajitas, Texas, FM 170.
