Vacation Pictures

These sum up my vacation nicely. Oh, what a vacation it was. Truly one for the ages.

Running.1

Beer.2

Food.3

Friends.4


1: At the summit of Black Mountain in the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Preserve, Los Altos Hills. 8 miles of hard trail to the top, where a gorgeous view and awesome rocks awaited. And then 8 miles back to the parking lot...

2: Deschutes Brewery Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

3: Insalata caprese which I made for the fabulous all-farmers'-market dinner, which also included roasted Brussels sprouts, sauteed green beans and shallots, roasted new potatoes with fresh rosemary, and olive oil-brushed crostini.

4: Me and my friend Mr. E at the Pyramid Alehouse & Brewery in Sacramento on the last day of my trip.
