Auto Touring

For a little auto touring, we decided to drive up the coast to Arch Rock Brewing in Gold Beach. They have a relatively small cozy tasting room where we sampled their brews, purchased a crowler, and then moved on, not wanting to stay in the confined space due to COVID. On the return trip, we stopped at various scenic overlooks, including the iconic Arch Rock, to enjoy the views.
