Day 54 - Heading to PDX

We headed north from Chico at about 11:30am. Thank you to my sister and brother in-law for their generosity. I really enjoy the time I've been able to spend with them and their family. We stopped at Yaks on the 5 in Dunsmuir, CA, for lunch. Their sign boasted that they were in the top 100 restaurants in the country and Yaks is an acronym for "Yet Another Koffee Shop". Kind of artsy and lots of potential with their homemade ingredients and quirky menu. This is a photo of one of the light fixtures in the dining room.

I had one of their burgers and the garlic parm fries. I'm afraid that I can only give it an OK. Not bad but not that fantastic. The fries had way to much raw garlic but the homemade asiago aolie was very good. Service was very slow but that may have been partially due to the huge group that had arrived just ahead of us.

After lunch, we headed on to Medford again. Thank you Dan and Judy for letting us stay yet again, and Mike and Suzanne for letting us crash your barbeque. Tomorrow, we head for PDX then back to Corvallis to drop off my sisters minivan and load up the Ural. I start heading north to Alaska on Tuesday.

    1. I'll pass on the music. Maybe some honky-tonk piano music from the Charlie Chaplin movie would be appropriate...
