I was wondering when you would start heading back to the mountains. I hate to see the small diners go the way of the dinosaurs, but like you, believe they are destined to silently slip away. One of my thematic tasks for this summer's trek is to capture as many of these places as I can, so if for nothing else, we can muse over them in our scrapbooks. Safe travels, Russ.
I think this would make a great series! Have fun with it.
