Harpers Ferry National Historical ParkĀ 

This was my first time in West Virginia and at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. I did two hikes on the Loudoun Heights Trail and through the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail runs from Georgia through Maine, so kudos to those who have completed the 2,200 mile trek. From my experience on the trails, it was completely peaceful being able to escape the chaos and crowds of the city. It’s incredible how much scenery exists in just an hour from the city.

I’m trying to fit in as many hiking trips I can this spring and summer. One of my biggest goals include hiking the Grand Canyon (fully). I know, I know…As an amateur hiker, I have a lot of training to do. Until then, I got the endless views I plan to seek and enjoy.

Shenandoah National Park


To celebrate National Park Week, Uriah and I traveled to Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. It’s about an hour and half from the District, which was a nice drive away from the city for the day. We got to escape the chaos for a bit of peace.

Take advantage of National Park Week, and visit a national park near you!

To continue updating on my road trip that I took with my best friends (back in March), here is part two of New Mexico. It’s hard to choose a favorite spot during the trip, but I can confirm that New Mexico was a great choice to start our journey towards California. NM is filled with so much Navajo history, and the beauty of the sunsets are hard to wrap around because they are unbelievably breathtaking. I remember the sky was a golden orange and pink (as seen in the last photograph). A photograph doesn’t seem to do justice though. You need to find yourself sitting on a mountaintop with your best friends, basking in the light and air of another part of the world you have not yet met. I was excited to introduce myself to New Mexico. You can see New Mexico, Part One here.
