Notes from the 2017 Glacier Road Trip, Day One

-Left Ukiah around 8:10 a.m., around an hour later than we wanted to leave.  Also passed Highway 20 near Lake Mendocino about 40 minutes before the traffic accident that killed two people.   

-Stopped in Corning at the Hometown Cafe for breakfast with my father.  Good standard breakfast food at a reasonable price.

-The ex-Shell station at Gas Point Road in Cottonwood had a teenager talking with her friend on the phone while servicing customers.  I kept having problems with my pump and she stayed on the phone.  She should be fired.

-Too stuffed to stop at Yaks in Dunsmuir, which might have some of the best hamburgers in the country.

-Mt. Shasta still has a lot of snow on it.  This has not been the case in the previous five years. 

-Has Wendy’s transitioned to being famous for…..its salads?   I still go for the frosties.

-Did a quick wine run at the Ashland Safeway and found nothing except pretentious Bo-Bos complaining about a lack of baguettes.

-Stopped and did a quick visit with my grandmother in Ashland.  Lots of family drama on the agenda.  She’s also reading the Alexander Hamilton biography by Chernow.

-Stopped at Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon for cheese tasting.  Bought burrata and bread for later and ran into a colleague from Ukiah High School.  Small world. 

-Arrived at the Linn County Comfort Suites in Albany, Oregon around 6:30 in the evening.  Very nice hotel for a reasonable price on I-5 in Oregon.
