wagons west: diner

forgotten marvel.

this diner was near our first campsite --- not abandoned, merely closed for the holiday weekend. it was in rough shape, though, certainly less gloss than in its heyday. it must have been a real treat to live back in the 50s, when people would spend a little extra money to make their restaurants look special, imaginative, alive. now, the march of carbon-copy mcdonalds, cheap, identical, dead.
