To condense over a week’s worth of stuff into a short sentence:
I visited a bunch of breweries, a couple of wineries, and some friends.
Check out this view from my friends’ backyard, just outside of Reno:
On my way across Nevada (I’m taking the interstate back to speed things up a bit), I passed this sign (I didn’t stop to take the picture; I figured, correctly, that someone had already posted it on the internet):
Tonight, I’m in Salt Lake City. As I discovered on my last adventure, Utah does, indeed, have good beer. But they have weird laws about them. Still, I was able to find a brewery, Red Rock, and sample some of their delicious beers – and I even brought one back to my hotel, one of the few Russian Imperial Stouts I’ve seen apart from Old Rasputin.
There are quite a few breweries here, actually, so I’ll have to come back sometime.
Tomorrow, I don’t know where I’m going, apart from eastward. So much depends on weather.
