Getting to Know Nevada City
The BF did a beer tasting at the local brewery and I even tried and liked a cider. The town also reminded me of my trip to Fall River Mills. By this I mean, seeing hippy like people with loads of tattoos, who are into au natural though why they think smelling bad is a good thing is beyond me. It is not natural to smell bad. Folks seemed pretty laid back and enjoying the good life. For the most part, drivers were considerate of us cycling on the roads, too. I didn't see much in the way of diversity. Bulletin boards were full of yoga institutes, classes for couple therapy and also, gatherings for women. A bit too weird for me but whatever floats your boat I suppose. Something I found odd though was the contrast between a healthy lifestyle and passing homes that I call trailer trash (junk in yards from broken down rusted vehicles to old bathtubs and couches strewn on lawns). I appreciated the opportunity to take in the town and get to know it a bit. It was a treat. The cycling was spectacular, more of that to come.
