I take a one-hour break and cool down in Kelso Depot's air conditioning before starting the climb up to Mid Hills campground
This lunch counter used to called "The Beanery" back in the old days and just reopened a couple of months ago.
I chat a lot with the owner and drink some of his excellent ice-cold homemade tea, and a couple of cans of Coke for the caffeine buzz that I'll need to make it up to Mid Hills in today's heat. Oh, and two bags of potato chips too for some extra salt.
