I spent the weekend in Klamath Falls, Oregon. My 9-year-old and I arrived Saturday night and had dinner at the town’s fanciest restaurant, Bel Tramonto. The gnocci was excellent, as was the eggplant lasagne. I don’t recommend the lobster ravioli, though, and I thought the chef had a bit too much penchant for fontina cheese. Tuscan style food with fontina? See what I mean?
We spent from sun up to sun down on Sunday birding–the Klamath Basin is the best place in the state to see bald eagles. They come here in the winter, from November through March, to feast on the abundant waterfowl in the area. I’m writing an article about bald eagle viewing for the Oregonian, which is what brought us there.
Getting back was harrowing and I had to buy chains before we left town. We had breakfast at Nibbley’s, renowned for its oat toast. My daughter had peach waffles and I had scrambled eggs with artichokes, spinach, and cheese (not fontina!). The drive was awful but the toast was delicious.
