A couple of weeks ago a friend and I drove out to Afton to visit the long abandoned mint condition Howard Johnsons in Afton.

The Pieman is still up there!

I can’t believe the weather vane has survived!

"it is so rank in there"

The Freezer had been pried open

The Freezer had been pried open. There was nothing in it, just really smelly.

Maybe I can salvage this photo.

  1. Thanks for the cool pics.

    Last time I was in Afton, it was the mid to late 80s and HoJos weren’t in such short supply. And the trip was to see Swannanoa, back when it was very new age.
