West Coast to the Wild West

These photos are from the last leg of my trip this summer. After an amazing estuary/sea kayaking adventure, harbor seals and egrets included, April and I road tripped it up to Crater Lake in Oregon. The most incredible lake, so blue, so cold, so clear. Camping under the most incredible blanket of stars. Life is tough.... Then I flew from Portland out to Colorado. I drove down to the desert with my pops and visited my aunt and uncle at their beautiful place. We explored ruins, canyons, and grilled and enjoyed the sunsets. To those of you that never leave the East Coast, well, this is what you are missing. I'm just saying.

Sausalito Night

Had the most amazing night on top of a friend's houseboat in Sausalito watching the meteor shower. We saw at least 40 shooting stars, and the milky way was in clear view. Oh the things you see when you leave the New York City sky (lucky to see 3 stars?).....

Beach Birthday

We went to this beach outside of San Fran in the Marin Headlands for April's birthday. It was a steep mile hike down, and the beach had this dark sand and it was perfect for drinking wine and sunbathing.

Badlands to Little Beirut

These are photos from our drive from Milwaukee to Portland. I meant to do these before the last entry, so it would be in chronological order, but I am sure you will forgive me for being scatterbrained as usual. We saw some amazing country. Especially the Badlands and the mountains of Wyoming. Hey, we even went to the corn palace....major letdown, I was expecting something hokey, but it was just lame (photo second from the bottom) it was a brick building with corn stuck on! Anyways...Portland was a really awesome city, which I plan on revisiting. Very down with the local/organic food movement (dionystically at delicious cart food), the people were chill, and there was good art. The people we stayed with had the most amazing chickens (above) and lovely home. Rachel had an incredible solo art show at Breeze Block Gallery. Then we headed down to the Bay Area, more pics on that to come.....

San Francisco to Monterey

While visiting my friend April in the bay area, we drove down to Monterey and shot along the coast. The fog set the mood for the day and created the most mysterious, luminous night.

Milwaukee Midwest Magic

I headed out to Milwaukee for some good times Midwest style. Traveling with my friends Rachel and Jesse, we ate delicious food from the garden, thrift stored it up, and ran wild in parks. Then we headed across the country westbound....
