Day 17 - Northern Exposure

sunny 66 °F

Leaving Spokane. A picture of us with Daniel's Aunt Barb.

The countryside between Spokane and Roslyn. Most of it is desert, but there are some very pretty areas.

Cicely's Gift Shop in Roslyn. Notice the "Dr. Joe (l) Fleischman" sign in the window.

Some pictures of the KBHR station in Roslyn. In fact, it is now a visitor's center. The volunteer at the visitor's center took our picture in the window where "Chris in the Morning" had his show.

Roslyn (s) Cafe. Of course, we didn't eat here. We ate at...

The Brick!!! The exterior looks exactly like the show. Apparently the interior scenes were filmed on a Seattle soundstage, so the interior of the bar looks a bit different. However, it was still amazing to eat at The Brick.

The building that was the set for Dr. Fleischman's office is now a gift shop. The owner was an extra on several seasons of the show, and told us a lot about the actors and the history of the show. We even got to see Marilyn's desk, which is still in it's place, though turned around the other way.

Correction: the second picture is the Roslyn Grocery Store, which was Ruth Anne's store on the show. It is across the street from Northwest Mining Company/ Cicely's Gift Shop/ Dr. Fleischman's office.
Another view of the Brick, and telephone pole that is a totem pole. Catherine has been saying all along on this trip that telephone poles should look like totem poles in the Northwest.

In all seriousness, Roslyn was a great place to visit. It has an intriguing history as a Washington coal mining town, and it looks exactly like it must have when Northern Exposure was filmed there. The gift shop owner told us that he sees the actors from the show fairly regularly when they come back to the town for various events. It was hard to not feel like we were in the show (and very hard not to hum the theme song the whole time we walked around). After we finished touring Roslyn, it was off to Hood River for Catherine's cousin Elise's wedding.

When we got to Hood River, we went to dinner/ drinks with Catherine's cousin Kaitlyn. We ran in to Catherine's uncle Dooley, and her cousins Thomas, Gregory, and Julianna. We had a great time. Tomorrow, we have the wedding and will certainly have a good time again!
