Static Train in Butte Falls

Riding along this lovely road I realized I was low on gas.  I knew Fish Lake didn't have gas on Sunday so I headed back to Butte Falls to get back to gas.


There was no open station in Butte Falls (it's Sunday)
  so I headed back down the hill.  Just as I was leaving town I saw a sign for the Historic           Location of the Butte Falls Flour Mill and I couldn't resist.  I turned down this dirt road and thought I was being pretty brave but then the road twisted down and there was ruts on both sides.

I couldn't turn around (believe me I tried!) so I had to commit to go down the road to the bottom and hope there was room to turn around.  This was at the bottom.

It was beautiful.  But no flour mill!

Maybe it was further down the road but I wasn't going to chance it!  I turned around and hauled ass back up the hill and back to civilization!

I decided on Shady Cove to get gas so I had lunch at Miguel's on the river.

Time to head for home.
