Mazama

Seven miles from the rim of the cauldron and two hundred feet above the headwaters of Annie Creek, at Annie Springs, is the village of Mazama. There is little enough here, a tavern, a store, a campground for overnighting caravans, and perhaps 40 families making up the village itself.

  1. Annie Creek Tavern – Annie’s, as the locals call it, though there is no Annie here, is both the only bar and only restaurant for those visiting Mazama. The owner, Winifred Bruce, keeps the place open from early-June through the middle of September, before retreating back to her home in Eldwyn’s Ledge. Seating is available for 60 guests. The place serves breakfast, dinner, and soup throughout the day. And for those looking to quench their thirst, Annie’s serves both beer and wine, the particulars of which are based on what is available. Winifred’s son, Adolphus, also sells some of his artwork from here; he is a talented if uninspired painter and sculpter.
  2. General Store – This is a seasonally operated store offering groceries, ice, sundries, gifts, and other basic provisions for living and traveling in the vastlands. The store is owned by, Winifred Bruce, owner of the Annie Creek Tavern, and run by Richard Rue, his wife, Emily, and there three sons, Fletcher, Bowman, and Archer.
  3. Mazama Village Campground – This is little more than a flat section of ground that the villagers have set aside for the caravans that pass through. It has room enough that over 200 tents can be housed here along with the accompanying wagons and animals. The campground is used from mid-June to late September/early October, weather permitting. Travelers can grab space here on a first-come-first-serve basis. Over the years the travelers and villagers have set up a few amenities around the place, including a well, fire rings, picnic tables, and even latrines and a dump site for garbage.
