We woke to find ourselves with a picture postcard view of Mount Shasta: topping out at over 14,000 feet it dominates the landscape

Travelling North to Oregon we bought fuel and provisions at Medford and cooked our breakfast at a rest area by Rogue River. We arrived in Salem about 1700 and checked into the Grand Court Hotel – it sounded 'grand' but was very shabby and, most importantly, cheap.  It was an opportunity to have a decent rest in proper beds and to do our washing at the nearby washeteria.  Also, we needed to look reasonably smart for the next day – hard to do after sleeping on the ground or in the car.  At a local restaurant the waitress was very chatty and took our addresses in England.  Then it was back to the hotel where television provided the evening entertainment, such as American TV can.
