Heading North

The Brown Trout
Originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

Monday morning, Eden and I took off for Ashland, on the way to Eugene to pick up India from Not Back To School Camp.
For a long time I've wanted to check out Dunsmuir, so we made a little stop over and landed here at the Brown Trout.
Dunsmuir has some very scenic streets. It's an old train town and seems very charming.
It was a rather hot day and the Brown Trout rewarded us with a lovely and unusual feature--a large ornate grate covers a hole down to a running creek below the shop. Refreshing cool air and the wonderful sound of the rushing water gave us a natural delight.
This more than made up for the awful food we got there. We actually were served a "jaffle" instead of the grilled cheese sandwich we ordered. The first one we'd ever seen outside of Bali. Ugh.
Andy says there's a much better cafe in Dunsmuir, so we'll have to stop in again some time.
