Accessing Location Within @reach/router

The API of @reach/router departs a bit from react-router in a couple ways. The location prop which you may be used to having access to automatically is instead available through the Location component.

import React from 'react';
import { Location } from '@reach/router';

const MyComponent = () => {
  return (
      {({ location }) => {
        return <p>Current Location: {location.pathname}</p>;

This is a contrived example, but you can imagine how you'd use it to access state or even create an HOC similar to withRouter.
