"Box Lunch at Baxter's"

Artist: James Geddes

Baxter’s remained a primary stop along Highway 40 for travelers
headed over the summit.
The buses in this drawing were headed to Salt Lake City.
Military men stepped outside for a smoke and some
conversation as travelers used the bathrooms and grabbed a
box lunch for their travels.

This stop was very popular for truckers into the1980’s where they
could rest in a booth with a coffee or late-night dinner. Dan Nelson
and I would drive up from Auburn at
midnight and enjoy a French dip and fries in the ‘70s.

The last original buildings were destroyed by fire in 1998.
There is nothing left of this bustling mountain stop over.
