Back to the Grind

Back to the Grind

 Good coffee, good craft beer, good friends, and live music too. Back to the Grind is an amazing coffeehouse in Riverside. I stopped in while passing through the area to see a friend perform, and found a coffeehouse that I wish was in my neighborhood. Stop by if you visit or pass through Riverside.

Don't shoot your eye out.


A young man ahead of me swerved to avoid an elk, but went off the road and took a tumble. Thankfully, he survived without injury. I had to drive several miles down the road to get sufficient signal to call police. Eventually an Apache officer and a State Trooper showed up.

Domestic Trash

Dang! I have to limit myself to dumping imported trash.

Sliver of Sunlight

I completely lost the Sun but then found it again after driving over a couple mountains. There's a sliver of sunlight ahead.
