What Cures Dehydration Better Than Beer?

After several days of being sick, I finally felt better yesterday so we decided to check out the Columbia River Gorge and do a little hike around the falls.

We stopped at Wahkeena Falls:

And then moved on to the second highest and most visited waterfall in Oregon:




















We walked up to the bridge and decided to keep going to the top as the map said it was only another 0.5 miles to the top of the falls. The map lied (or *cough* perhaps we misread it). It was a mile and a quarter of switchbacks to the top which would have been fine except for the fact that I was wearing sandles and we did not bring water. Despite that, we made it to the top only slightly dehydrated and with only one blister on my right foot. Success!

Having experienced Oregon nature, we then decided to experience some Oregon beer:














And then Oregon wine:




















And finally Oregon Frufru drinks:

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
