Always look forward to the road opening...Any one ever get to the gate when the hot cinammin rolls are offered on opening day? What is that lady's name from Marblemount that does that?

You can still get in on the cinnamon rolls at The Eatery in Marblemount. Mmmm, almost as good as Carol's rolls at the old Carol's Coffee Cup in Demming on the Mount Baker Hwy.

cinamon rolls

by Norman » Fri Apr 16, 2010 3:54 pm

Changing thread to food...I've had a few from the old Carols on Mt Baker. They had great pictures of the trees from years ago that are now only found on film. Old growth forests must have been amazing. Well, I've happy a good cinamon roll can still be found in the Pacific Northwest. Maybe a new page on rolls could be started...some how connect to climbing???
