By the way, that orange can on the stump is a Uinta Wyld. A very appropriate brew for any backpacking trip, especially with its outdoor-themed packaging.

  • November: Not much camping occurred, I'm afraid, partly due to crappy weather as I recall. Besides the yurt trip, there was one backpacking trip to Third Lake. The only shot I took that night was of the full moon rising over the lake. Otherwise that was a night with a good fire, a couple beers, and a little bit of whiskey--but not much photography.

This is what the bottle looks like. Note the tent and the built-in compass. The can design is very similar. Not bad beer, for Utah.

Uinta Beer

I've never had the Wyld brew but Uinta beer is just that... a fancy package. I've never had one that I cared for. YMMV.

Nope. But I know exactly what you mean.

And if an Uinta tastes good after a long day, imagine how good a tasty beer is!

Go ahead and try them, but I prefer beers that are about the beer and not the packaging.

One of my favorite places to "camp out" on weeknights is Nail Creek Pub in Utica. It's the type of establishment where you usually never know what's available on draft until you walk in. Trying the new stuff is part of the adventure. "Liking" a particular brew or "disliking" it is less important than enjoying the experience of trying it. Admitting that I "like" a beer doesn't mean that I'm married to it for life, therefore I can happily say I like a broad range of beers.

And included within that happy range is Uinta.

I generally agree with these ratings:

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1416/14190

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/1416/73965

Which are ones you may find locally. They are OK... but surely no...

And yes, I'll carry a glass bottle.

Geez, With all the adversaries you are accumulating with your articulated outrage and unwavering devotion to the doctrine of "forever wild" I am surprise you would reveal a sanctuary. I am close by and am tempted to stop in, disturb your furlough, and buy you a beer or two.

Most of those adversaries don't live in Utica, so it would be easier for them to simply gun me down on the trail somewhere. Fewer witnesses, too.

Have tried a couple of times in winter with a closed cell pad under me. Woke up with a cold stiff back each time. Back surgery in the past may be part of the issue but I should probably try a partially inflated Thermarest and give it another chance sometime.

I wish I could have joined you all Justin. Alas I was stuck in the Detroit Airport.

I had to investigate that myself Sunday morning. There are actually three snowshoes on the right, and one on the left. But it wasn't obvious until I got up close.

It was discussed. The surface of the ice was soft enough that it would have been a soft landing.
