We hit Hell’s Backbone Grill promptly at 6:30 and were seated right away. There was plenty of room. To our surprise, the hostess was the waitress who’d served us pizza in Escalante a few days before. It seems she works at both places but lives here in Boulder. Small world. She said she could make it from Boulder to Escalante in 45 minutes. Pretty impressive considering the road. Lavinia, the sister of one of the owners, waited on us once again and was delightful. We started with a nice Groth Savignon Blanc, homemade chips and salsa and a 3 beet salad (w/local goat cheese) from their own fresh beets. They have a large garden which adds so much flavor to the food and makes interesting ingredients available in a remote location.
