Hey, so… We’ve been MIA for about a month.

No, we didn’t die.  Or pass out from drinking too much beer.

Idaho’s First State Park: Heyburn State Park

Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows of our fondness for national parks. But we are not always fond of their pet rules. So we more often opt for state parks as their pet rules are a little more lenient.

Which brings us to Heyburn State Park in Idaho. Hayburn is unique as it was once slated to be a national park but it was later decided to make it Idaho’s first state park.

Paws For Beer: March Beer Round Up

March Beer Round Up
Beer with a view. Post Falls Brewery in Post Falls Idaho

So I realized something. I decided to change my beer blog posts up, by changing to a monthly post, which I did for December…. and then I missed January… and then February and now we are to the middle of March.

Apparently, I need a personal assistant, not that I can afford to pay one, but someone who can hold me accountable for the things I say and then make me do them.

For now, I’ll have to hold myself accountable. So here it goes, March’s Monthly Beer Round Up.

When I lost my job last year my travels were slightly hindered. I still ventured out, but locally. By the end of September, I became gainfully employed again and decided to celebrate this occasion by taking one last mad dash trip before returning to adult responsibilities.

My home state Idaho is known for many things. We grow potatoes. Our college football team plays on blue Smurf Turf.  Our state’s gem is the Star Garnet, found only in two places in the world, in Idaho and Africa.  We are home to the desert but also stellar mountain ranges such as the Sawtooths and Selkirks.  We are also home to an array of scenic byways, such as the Payette River Scenic Byway.

Paws For Beer 2017 Beer Advent Calendar Review

2017 Beer Advent Calendar Review
A beer tree for Christmas

Last week I rounded up our year of travels so my last task for the year is to round up my 2017 Beer Advent calendar. I was pretty successful this year with only having two repeat beers on my beer list. And I actually did it on purpose, not because I forgot like I did last year. It was the Luponic #007 from Firestone Walker and worth a repeat and the Bad Santa from Pelican Brewing.  Also worth a second glass.

Paws For Beer Year In Review – 2017

Seeking Sunshine In Winter
The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas

It is the end of another year and I always like to reflect back on my travels. This year was a slight hiccup though. The beginning of the year started out a bit rough with some financial and emotional lows. It resulted in me spontaneously jetting off to Las Vegas in February to see Bon Jovi in concert.
