Hiker's Hummus has gone along on many journeys this summer!
It's been enjoyed at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, on lonesome lakes up along the US & Canadian border, high up on Kesugi Ridge in Alaska, along the High Sierras, and more. And so far the feedback has been excellent! What started as a nutty new idea for a local hummus company in Eastern Wisconsin is out there making a small difference in peoples' lives. That's amazing! Needless to say, we hope to go on many more journeys with you.
Now that the kids are back in school and the tree in our front yard has begun to drop leaves, we thought we'd update you on a few things.
uBu Hiker's Hummus at Pacific Crest Trail Days!
For us, the Summer's most significant journey was to Pacific Crest Trail Days in Cascade Locks, Oregon. Linda met up with her sister, Mary, and had a wonderful time meeting many thru-hikers and others in the PCT community. (Photo credit: @robertjhill).
One of the highlights of the trip to Oregon was running into Bernadette Murray, who remains one of the youngest people to have traversed the Pacific Crest Trail. She was 10 years old when they set off up the PCT on horseback! Check out some vintage photos of their 1969-70 excursion.
Aldo Leopold Benches
Every pouch of Hiker's Hummus has plans for the Aldo Leopold Bench hidden in the gusset, so you know we're fans of its brilliant and utilitarian design. We were ecstatic to find what might be the world's largest specimen at the Stevens Point Sculpture Park. It's worth checking out if you find yourself in Central Wisconsin.
Speaking of our low-key scheme to spread Aldo Benches from coast to coast... we are aware of two that have been built from our plan and we are pleased.
We love our farmers markets... We will be doing Green Bay's Saturday market through the end of Octo-brrrrr and Appleton through the end of September. Linda will be doing many of the Produce With Purpose markets. So if you live in the Fox Valley get in the loop on that (you won't regret it.) There's also the Downtown Green Bay Holiday Market (TBA). And maybe Military Avenue?
