I don't know if it's the magic of the area, or the Awesome food we had at the Palm Cafe, but I LOVE Orick. We were told by an ex forest ranger to make sure to stop in Orick for the Lady Bird Johnson Grove, and Fern Canyon. So, we stopped there for a night on our way to bigger, and better things, so we thought. We ended up staying in Orick, in the Palm Motel for 3 days, because it's so enchanting there. Let's face it, the room was a million years old and probably wasn't great a thousand years ago, but it was clean, I slept like a rock, it was Large, and in the end I had everything I needed. It's beyond quaint, and if you were to adjust your radio while driving you'd miss the whole town, but I thought it was a little gem, unfortunately hidden beneath a run-down exterior.
At the Palm Cafe I had a burger and fries and the most amazing shake I've ever had (Neapolitan shake with peanut butter), and it was all fantastic. The little salad-bar wasn't too bad, and their breakfast was TDF. It has Character. We're headed back in June, and I couldn't be more excited.
