We arrived in the surrounding area of Mount St. Helens after dark so we found somewhere to stay and looked for a place to eat dinner. We were kind of in the middle of nowhere so our options were scarce. The man at the hotel kept going on and on about the wonderful hamburgers at a little place just a couple of miles down the road so we decided to give it a try. Well...we tried. We walked in and sat down. The place was completely empty except for 2 people at the bar. When the owner/manager/waiter came out from the kitchen he told us that he couldn't serve us because we had a minor (Kellan). We found this so funny and at first we thought he was joking...nope he was totally serious. We had to take a picture of the Country Corner Kitchen and Tavern.
|Kellan is the only 11 month old that I know that has already been kicked out of a bar for being underage :)|
|The hotel and dock|
|Our cabin, lucky number 7, right on the water :)|
|Nothing fancy but definitely cute|
|Patty's Place was SO GOOD! We actually ate there twice...on the way up to Mt. St. Helens for breakfast and on the way back down for lunch.|
