Aug 31 - Nerdy Dancing

Yelp events rock in general, but I'd have to say the Nerdy Dancing party was the most fun I've ever had at a Yelp event. Here are a selection of photos.

Aug 28 - Chaiya Meditation Monastery

Met up with some Meetup folks (because that's what we do) to check out the monthly food fair at the Chaiya Meditation Monastery. It's barely five minutes from my house and I never even knew it existed.

Aug 26 - Fiddler On The Ranch

My last couple of posts haven't been spectacular, but I feel bad if I don't post anything for a while. We saw Fiddler on the Roof out at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. It's a production put on by Super Summer Theatre and it was surprisingly good—not that I expected much. It was a beautiful night and a nice escape from the 100-degree heat.

Aug 20 - Mash Tun

I don't really know what a mash tun is. And I'm OK with that. The bottom line is that Joseph James Brewing Company puts on a great tour of their facility. It's really not much of a tour—everything is in a small space—but they make up for it with a passionate and educational experience. It also helps that they pretty much let you drink as much as you want. Responsibly.

Aug 6 - Virgin Narrow Slot

I finally made it into the Zion Narrows—a spectacular slot canyon at the north fork of the Virgin River in Zion National Park. I bought a dry bag to protect my camera gear and headed upstream with our party of four. We had time constraints, so I chose to only bust out my DSLR once to capture an image for this blog (for snapshots, I also had my point-and-shoot in a waterproof case I got from Amazon).

To be honest, I'm not completely happy with the results. But then again, when am I ever? I will definitely have to return. I might have to go by myself so that I don't feel like people are waiting for me. I should also go on a weekday so there are fewer people—I had to wait a little while to capture the shot below sans Homo sapiens.

And of course, I also updated my Zion Yelp review.
