Waaaayyy off the Beaten Path

The Tourist Club - Mill Valley, California

With Katryn Leach, Bob Weisenseel and Dave Backman

June 2005

6/25/05: After hiking for a mile and a half on a mist-shrouded trail in Mill Valley, north of the Golden Gate Bridge, NOT (accompanied by Dave and east coast visitors Kat and Bob) found the Tourist Club, a German beerhall hidden in the woods. Owned by an international environmental group since 1912, this lodge had three tap lines and another dozen kinds of bottled beer we had never even heard of, a fireplace and game room, and rooms where members could sleep during multi-day hikes.
