    If anything, I'll still get to see Roslyn. Always wanted to go eat a meal at The Brick and take a few pics ever since Northern Exposure aired.

    Well, for those interested in an little comparison, I made a trip up to Ronald last week, and tried to match a few photos for a then and now. Unfortunately, out of this group, the only building I could find was the general store.



    There are lots of other buildings left, but most have been restored. I'll post separately seen about what else is there today.

    If they do we'll have to kick the mods in painful places.

    When I see your photos I wish I were able to see these places as they were in the 1960s and '70s, and then I go one step further and wonder what they looked like in their heydays.

    Keep posting!

    I never get tired of looking at the well framed photographs of a true professional---especially when they are pictures of things I love to see. Your photo's make me want to get out and travel.

    I was actually contacted by the present owner of this store after he saw my original photos of it on this forum. Kinda neat as it brought back some memories.

    When I come to visit my relative in Bellevue later this week I'd like to see Ronald if we have time after visiting Lester and if the weather will permit us to do so.

    Looks like I missed a few buildings when I was at Ronald last Saturday. Sure is great country up there.
