I see there is a new beer to try, though reading the description you could mistake it for a cider! I’m going to try to grab some cans on the way past, so I can taste ready for a review. Sound like it could be a good summer beer. http://21st-amendment.com/beers/sparkale/
So, there was a change of policy at Facebook that changed how WordPress could share to Facebook.

It feels like forever since I planned a hike. Truth is I haven’t really done any hiking since I returned to the US. The week after I got home, my car got wrecked, and it was a month before I was beck on the road; long enough to put us into cold damp, holidays and… Read More What Happened To Alex?
Northern California Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge™ Turns out there is a charity challenge to home six Bay Area peaks. I’m not up to the challenge this year, but I thought I’d share the link to the official page.

Those of you who have known me a while know that I like The Faction and their… Read More St.George? That’s the spirit!
You can tell I’m a rank amateur at this. I recently visited a bar after a hike, and I didn’t get a photo of the bar to add to the review. Silly me. Anyway, the review is on-line now. I promise I’ll do better next time. Cheers Alex
Check out my hike on Strava: https://www.strava.com/activities/1539640721/shareable_images/photo_based/13210547/1/651de4a1-4a7e-4160-8e2d-ce42a12f757c?hl=en-US&v=1525056878 So we actually did a more adventurous hike than planned. My knee held up fine, but I did take Tylenol for breakfast. The weather was excellent, keeping temperatures low enough to hike, and the air was clear so visibility was excellent. Woodpeckers, wild turkey, stella jays, hawks and… Read More Tri Valley Views and Wild Turkey.
