Last call beer, Contigo Austin

expensive gastro-pubs with outdoor seating are in. this place has been around for about a year and a half, less than a mile from our house. i've hosted two matador meetups there.

we're happy for their success, though it means the wait's often longer than we want to commit. 11-midnight is a good time to visit.

pictured pint is local circle brewing's smokin' beech, a rauchbier whose novelty wears off halfway through the glass.

Trail vignette: Pedernales Falls State Park

last weekend we camped for a night at pedernales falls state park and were able to walk both of the park's longer trails. this shot is from the 7.5-mile loop to jones spring. there was bitterweed in bloom all over the park, but this stretch was absolutely covered.

halah enjoyed it. ears up.
