No road trip is complete without an occasional misadventure. Our crew had to make a brief stop in Shaniko to repair what looks like some broken spokes. OK, with the hood up and a bucket under the radiator, maybe it wasn't a brief stop.
Shaniko is now considered a ghost town, with a population of 26. But back in the early 20th century it was an important rail junction known for sheep ranching.

I probably wasn't too long of a stop as they carried that spare tire mounted on another wheel, at least my great-grandfather did on his trips early to California. I have pictures of him pumping up the tire, so maybe the air didn't stay in them too well.
You can see the jack under that axle. Doesn't appear that they have it jacked up high enough to remove tire. Maybe the tire on the ground is the bad one and they are just getting the lug nut tightened down on the new one.

Where is their camping gear?
That tent, table and chairs take up a lot of room.
I bet there were two cars on this trip!
Looks like the lady just made a purchase at the liquor store.

I suspect you're right about them having two cars. A small caravan would also make sense given the country they were crossing. There's no conclusive evidence in this collection of images.
If there's liquor in the bag, she bought it from a moonshiner. 1921 was during the era of prohibition.

There is a second car with just the very front of it in the left middle of the pictures.
