Continuity 

Joe returns to the diner after picking up the rifle (which is now old and dried out). As he opens the door to re-enter the diner, he is carrying the rifle in his left hand but the inside shot of him coming through the door shows him carrying it with his right hand.

During the gas station restaurant scene, Christian has about a four or five days growth of beard. When he returns to the wagon the growth is down to that of only about a day or so.

When Christian returns to the wagon train at the end, he tells of all the things that will one day be in California, and mentions the word "highways." Being that it's 1847, how would he know what a highway is unless the diner owners explained it to him at some point?
