We drove up at night and snacked on homemade trail mix (recipe to follow) along the way. The mountain air was crisp and clear. And with the aide of a GPS, the places we chose to visit were relatively easy to find. (Do you remember taking road trips with nothing but a map? I think we were smarter then; using true map-reading skills and common sense, but with the GPS, there's not much thinking involved. But I digress...) On this trip we had a few weird encounters, probably because we had the word "outsider" stamped on our foreheads, but other than that, no problems.
I had never heard of acupressure before, but after that service, I'm definitely looking into it. If I weren't almost 4 hours away, I'd go back there again. Maybe next time!
And as promised, my easy peasy trail mix recipe:
Libby's Trail Mix Recipe
2 c dry roasted peanuts (no-salt)
1 c dry-roasted almonds (no-salt)
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/2 c raisins
1 c dried pineapple (chopped in bite-size pieces)
1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients in an air-tight container. Shake to combine. Enjoy!
* Of course, Trail Mix is one of those types of dishes where you put in whatever you like. I used what I had. Making my own Trail Mix prevents me from having to pick out the ingredients in the store-bought ones that I don't like. :-)
