Canyon Village Dining Room (Yellowstone)

One day at Yellowstone we stopped for lunch at the Canyon Lodge dining room in Canyon Village. I thought it looked like something from a different decade, classic American decor but from a different era. The food and service were from this day and age, casual but tasty.
I liked the outside of the building, with huge steel beams holding up the roof. I bet in the winter these are needed to support the weight of the snow.
And that was my world, just a few weeks ago. Visit the My World Tuesday site for lots more unpredictable, fun and interesting photos.

  2. Looks like a great place to eat! Of course, it's hard for me to find anything about Yellowstone that isn't great! Hope your week is off to a good start! Enjoy!

  7. Looks like "Mission 66" era of straight classic lines still using wood. Never was in this Yellowstone service, always enjoyed the ambiance of the Old Faithful Lodge. But I wouldn't want to be at either during winter.

  8. Thank you for the escape in the middle of the night to what seems to be a nice place. Somehow reminded me of Christmas ... please have you all a good Tuesday.

  13. The wood-paneled walls & ceilings, and the stone chimney are beautiful! Two of my favorite materials. Very interesting information about the weight of the snow too.

  15. The lights, they are great.

    For the beams, may be they very over cautious architects design for the 100 year snow dump. ( Husband is an engineer, so some of his engineering talks rub off on me.)

    This year, if I recall correctly, overnight 2 metres of snow fell here in NEw Zealand.

  16. I was just there last month. We sat down to eat and got up and went to the buffet next door. My son didn't want to eat at that restaurant.
