it was necessary to grab a bite to eat in Umatilla. it was getting late in the day (like 8pm or shortly after) and i knew from the map that i wasn’t heading into anything cosmopolitan at all. so, i backtracked and did a sortie thru town. when you have relatives from Iceland and a thing for burgers, there’s no way to avoid the “Viking Burger”.
it was no “Yeti Burger”, let me tell you. but it was really good in a classic, old style burger way. the decor certainly elevated things. and that pic in the top right corner … i don’t know what the hell that was. looks a lot like a fucking submarine. and i’m sure they’ve been up the Columbia some time in the past.
