Meandered South towards queens town climbing higher and higher into the mountains and into gold rush country. We stopped at a hotel in the middle of nowhere on the side of the road. It had been built in 1863 and hadn't changed since on the outside.

I obviously went for the biggest one they had on the menu (1/2 lb meat, bacon, cheese, 2 eggs, beetroot, lettuce, tomato, red onion, relish, and aioli (I don’t know what that is either)).
