    Ok, starting up a proper thread where we can keep posting pictures of quality beer consumed in beautiful places. I'll kick it off with two from this weekend in southern Sierra Nevada.

    A Karl Strauss Mosaic session IPA for scale on a giant sequoia in the Freeman Creek grove. Even with the bottle, its hard to tell the scale of this tree.

    Thanks for starting this swivelhips. Great pics so far!

    Short hike on my way to de Garde the other day. About a mile of switchbacks down the cliffs to the beach at Cape Meares Viewpoint.

    Awesome pics so far.
    Heading back to the Rockies in a few weeks. Will be stopping at a couple cool spots along our way there.

    This one was from last year at Lake Moraine while canoeing with the kids.

    I have a taste for cans while in the woods, the bigger the better. If the creek is cold enough, they'll chill nicely while I setup the tent.

    Hey a thread I can participate in regularly. Here's a few to get started

    I've got TONS of pictures that qualify for this thread. Just need to hook up my external hard drive and dig around for them

    Looks like you're in my neck of the woods! There's a loop around Three Sisters I've done a few times and will be doing so again this year also. Broken Top is one of the few peaks I can recognize at a glance aside from the Sisters.

    Bonus pic: here's some Three-Way of my own chilling at the base of Mt Jefferson last 4th of July.
