Maybe it’s my city-girl bias talking, but in the last year, twice I’ve been genuinely surprised to greatly enjoy beer from a small-town brewery. If people are coming to the only brewery around for miles, I guess I thought some places would skimp on taste or quality. But not in Long Beach!
If one were to choose to play hooky to hike and get a beer (or if one works an alternative schedule), many breweries might not be open weekdays, especially weekday afternoons. But if hiking up north, Sound to Summit in Snohomish has got your back!
When the going gets tough, the tough get going–to the woods, to the beaches, to the mountains. I needed to escape to nature last week but with a time crunch and dark clouds looming, picked something close and easy: Heybrook Ridge.
The days of Yogi Bear hunting down a pic-o-nic basket are long gone. In this day and age, you need to keep your food locked up tight before a bear or smaller critter gets to it first! Not just to keep your belly full, but for an animal’s safety as well.
