I follow a few different groups on a website called Reddit.com, which is kind of a conglomeration of website links, pictures,videos, stories, and experiences that allows users to “upvote” them if they think the link is good. The best part is that you can find a subreddit on almost any topic. As an intrepid Mountainbeer-er, I am attracted to very specific types of subreddits such as – Beerporn (a collection of pictures of beer), Hiking (pictures and stories from people’s hikes), Bicycling (everything you could ever want to know about anything remotely related to a bike), etc.
Sometimes my worlds magically align, and I’ll come across great pictures of people Mountainbeering without even knowing it. Recently, user Noisyriver posted some pictures from hiking around Ruidoso, NM. It really brought me back a few years to my days of living in Santa Fe, teaching Environmental Education, and hiking the lofty New Mexican peaks. Noisyriver has graciously allowed me to wallow in nostalgia a bit longer by letting me share his pictures on Mountainbeering.

Thanks, Noisyriver, and keep up the good work!
