The Hi-Lo, Weed, CA

We overnighted in Weed, getting there after darkness descended.
After checking in at the Hi-Lo Motel, we beelined to the Cafe.
Such a great placemat.
We both ordered B.L.A.S.T.s (Bacon, Lettuce, Avo, Swiss, Tomato).
We only ate 1/2, and packed the rest for lunch the next day.
 Our room, Suite 16, was spacious and had a complete kitchen, living room, two king bedrooms, and one bath.
6am view from my room, I could "just" see Mt. Shasta.
Kitty mug, blurry Shasta.
 We returned to the Cafe for hearty breakfasts.
Two free coffee tokens.
Great mug, I bought one two years ago en route to Vancouver, BC.
So long, Suite 16, you were sweet.


Northbound I-5 in Waterlogues: Day 1

Here's day one of my drive up I-5, depicted in Waterlogues. I dragged along a sketchbook for the entire trip and I have nothing to show from that effort. Waterlogues it is.
Rest Stop, Lebec
Big Ball, Kettleman City
Tomatoes, Mendota
Truck Stop, Gustine
Oversize and Aqueduct, Patterson
Garlic, Patterson
Rush Hour, Sacramento
At this point, it got too dark to take pictures.
Also too dark to see Mt. Shasta (boohoo).
We got as far as Weed (612 miles), where we spent the night at the Hi-Lo Motel.
Carmaig and I switched off on the driving.
He very kindly indulged me in my truck photography, and even captured me in the act (shooting the tomato truck).
