The continued existence of wildlife and wilderness is important to the quality of life of humans 🦌🦌
Hey you! Come say hi to us today at the Sierra Nevada Hop Harvest Festival. Stop by our booth and be the first to get a taste of the newest batch of Playground Tactics and Like Riding A Bike. We’ll be canning both of these beers and releasing them this Tuesday October 23rd.
If you choose this camera angle on Möbius arch it becomes a boot arch. Not to be confused with the actual boot arch, which is several miles away. Just a play on visuals.
It’s time to prepare #18
for the move to Durango. The first thing we’ll move is the tender. After that we’ll move the locomotive. For those who are wondering #18
is only going to Durango temporarily. She’ll be back sometime next summer.
Oh wow what can I say about this plant. My first time working with her and I can already sense her essence and teachings. Brewer’s Angelica grows along side and in waterways. The roots grow shallow but strong in the current, the flowers delicate and white but large and bold. Feminine and masculine. Sweet but sturdy. I identify so much with the way this plant grows and displays. The leaves, seeds, and roots can be used medicinally as an anti-spasmodic and feminine tonic, especially helpful for menstrual cramps and regulating menstruation. 🌿
This is the lowest in elevation I’ve found this plant in great abundance, on the west side of the Sierra. I feel very lucky to have happened upon this stand of Angelica and for the abundance I’ve been gifted with! In taking just a handful of plants I barely affected the population and helped scatter seeds along the creek. Splitting her roots lengthwise, I was allowed into her inner system. The scent is almost like fennel, the texture fibrous and easy to cut. I’m looking forward to processing the dried parts into tinctures and teas. Check back in a couple of months for the finished products. 😉
Clouds roll in above Mt Francis P Farquhar as we race the thunder and impending storm back down past Sphinx Lakes.
