Before I announce the winners of the CLIF Seasonal Bar contest, I wanted to share one more tidbit about this product that wasn't mentioned in my giveaway post - it highlights another one of CLIF's ongoing efforts to give back to the greater community around it.
With this year's batch of seasonal CLIF bars, the company is donating 1% of its net sales to the Winter Wildlands Alliance, an organization that works on behalf of skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and other cold-weather adventurers to address national issues which impact winter outdoor activity. So you're getting a great product for yourself, and contributing a little bit to a good cause.
Just remember that you'd better hurry up and buy them, because CLIF makes these bars in limited quantities, and they're usually gone by early December. And if your profile name is Justin Nunez, Oklahoma, or Pretend This is Real, e-mail me your address - you've won the giveaway! Thanks again to everyone who entered, and continued kudos to the CLIF company for making all this happen.
And now for this weekend's Random Shot of Beauty:
A pumpkin patch in a lettuce field - how very Salinas Valley.
