Spring in the Gorge
On Saturday, I pried myself away from the computer to head down the gorge for the first annual Hard Pressed Cider Fest just outside Hood River. The location was a fruit warehouse in the middle of acres and acres of rolling orchards in bloom. I'm still in super slo-mo on blogging as I enter the final two weeks of book-writing (about cider, so I justified the trip as "research"), so you just get pictures.

country than beer.)
