Joshua Tree

Located right in Southern California, Joshua Tree National Park is one of my favorite national parks. It has more than 750 species of plants blooming in the Mojave Desert, along with their wealth of trails for hiking, which Ben and I took advantage. We hiked up Ryan Mountain, a moderately easy 3-mile hike that brought us to a gorgeous sunset view.

 

San Diego

In early November, Ben and I traveled to San Diego. It was a belated birthday gift from him and a very special getaway for the both of us. After being 3 months apart, it was amazing to get some alone time with each other and explore somewhere new. Long distance isn’t easy, and I find myself missing him everyday.

We spent the majority of our vacation searching for the best California burritos and carne asada fries in San Diego. Part 2 of our trip is next. We visited Joshua Tree (Ben’s first time)!

San Francisco, Part 1

In April, I traveled to California to be with my family and boyfriend. I recently blogged about my visit to Los Angeles (City of Angels, Part 1 & City of Angels, Part 2 & City of Angels, Part 3) , but I’m finally getting around in posting about the Bay Area.

San Francisco has a special place in my heart. Here’s what I captured during my stay (more to come).

I am back with Los Angeles, Part 2! You can take a look at Part 1 here. I was so good with blogging at least once a week, but it just went downhill from there. Currently doing my best to keep up with a full time job (I do love my job), while driving my passion for photography and writing alive when work is done.

Still on the fence whether Los Angeles, Part 3 should be another post. I have plenty of pictures from my trip to California, so it’s probably going to take a few posts. In the meantime, look out for more photography projects I am working on this summer.
