No Sign Of Eric, Jeff, Jimmy, Et Al

Join TSG for a visit to Yard Birds, the gigantic indoor flea market of Chehalis WA. It was formerly a retail mega-mall with auto parts, sporting goods, hardware, housewares, furniture, clothing, restaurant, the Birds' Nest Cocktail Lounge and a car wash. Not to mention a country and western store, a dance school, a radio/TV station, a bank, a grocery store, a drug store, and Army and Navy recruiting offices. 

The place has definitely seen better days, and it was kinda spooky wandering around. It seemed almost totally deserted on a Friday afternoon, only a few sellers were in attendance and maybe only a couple of other "shoppers" besides TSG. 

Hmmm...about the title of tonight's entry--If you had the time, the chances are good that you could find a Yardbirds LP/8-track/CD in there somewhere.

Thank You, Henry J. Biddle

Legend says HJB bought Beacon Rock for a dollar and then set to constructing the trail to the top that hikers still use today. Even on a cloudy day the views up and down the Columbia are spectacular.  Well done, Henry!

Best Dam Place For Your Fish And Folf Fix

In an interesting bit of road trip serendipity, TSG discovered a bonus attraction at the McNary Dam Pacific Salmon VIC: a really nice frisbee golf course.
 Nice to know you can call the park rangers to help you retrieve lost discs.
