Picking up in Klamath Falls, OR where we left off last night:
At the bottom of the pole:
This one in Klamath Falls is a mystery to me. It’s on the roof of Basin Glass. The fisherman and fish are made out of little bulbs and/or LED tubing. Unfortunately, it wasn’t lit at night — I tried!
This one is in Lakeview, OR. I’m a sucker for mortar & pestle signs:
There are loads of drive-thru coffee kiosks in Oregon & Washington. You can’t drive a mile without seeing one. And on this trip with 100+ temperatures nearly every day, I stopped at a lot of them for iced Cold Brews. Yes, even the little one-of-kind places are keeping pace with Starbucks — you just have to ask because it’s usually not on their little menu boards. Anyway. The dogs LOVE these places because all of them give the dogs biscuits. I can barely get my coffee ordered and safely back in the van with Gremmie and Nik-y hanging out the window drooling and watching the attendant’s every move. Well, Nik (the black & white dog) isn’t watching since he can’t see but the second I roll down the window and start talking to somebody, he knows the deal:
They don’t want the change — they want more of those biscuits, please!
Crossing over into California now. The Burney Bowl is, naturally, in Burney:
These two signs are also in Burney:
Susanville has a lot of great signs — here are just a few:
Obviously, there was neon here originally. I think the bowling ball looks more like an Oreo:
These two signs are at the same place:
Here’s what the sign above looked like originally when it had that panel in place:
There are two of these pretty much identical bulb arrow add-on signs across the street from each other at different businesses:
This former A&W building and sign are also in Susanville. This is the stubbier smaller pilgrim hat variety. I like this re-use with the little pagoda-esque projections at the corners. Lots more of these buildings all over the country — photos at my website starting at this page:
Moving on to Chester, CA:
Two separate signs for the restaurant & motel:
Last one for this post — the final stop for the night was in Red Bluff. Only a few signs were lit. Love the simulated wood letters:
One more post to go!
