When I go hiking with our wife, every one of us often choose mountain trails that take about numerous hours to climb, rest at the top of & come back down to the base of the mountain, and one year, our wife & I chose this trail that was on a mountain outside of our regular selection, as it was in a odd state. We heart it was a more than five hour round-trip, but every one of us were definitely mistaken! Due to inclement weather, every one of us were stranded on the trail for nearly two hours. It was freezing cold, & every one of us didn’t pack enough hot clothes to change out of as it rained. We would’ve killed to find a safe haven from the freezing rain, & someplace with a gas furnace, radiator, or even a fireplace to supply some warmth! With nowhere to go, every one of us used our compass & trekked back down to the base to search for our car. On our way back down, every one of us ran into a most surprising sight – a casual little diner, right there on the side of the trail! We were convinced every one of us were seeing a mirage, but it was the real deal. We walked in, & a waiter was near the front to seat us & supply us menus, however thankfully every one of us were standing right under a ventilation point in the ductwork of the diner’s heating & air conditioner, so every one of us had warm, dry air blowing right down to us & providing us with comforting heat. The indoor air quality in this diner was sublime after being caught in the freezing rain for hours! It wasn’t until every one of us walked out of the diner when the rain subsided, that every one of us realized every one of us simply walked off the main trail & onto a back trail, but no wonder every one of us got lost & couldn’t find our way back to the parking lot! Either way, every one of us were thankful to have found that diner & enjoyed their excellent heating plan to hot up & dry out.
