A short update this week as I prepare a bit longer recap with some favorite places, drives, and moments from the entire journey. I visited one of my final national parks in exploring Carlsbad Caverns and broke my record for distance traveled in one day as I made my way back to the East coast.
Ah the Southwest! This area has turned out to be one of the my most favorite regions of the journey. There is so much to love. The culture, the climate, the landscapes, beautiful open areas, and the pungent smell of sage almost everywhere you go. As my journey begins to wind down I'll begin to reflect upon all of the many things I've experienced in the past three months. Click through for for some magic in between the magic.
A final day in Grand Canyon, a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, and a whirlwind tour of five Utah National Parks in just two days. I tell you that Arizona and Utah should be called "The land of canyons". Utah alone I could have explored for a few weeks itself. Maybe another time. Click on through for a shorter update with more pictures that usual.
The universe continues to produce. I've had some magical moments this week. I saw a psychic, took a risk, asked questions, and it all paid off. Letting go works. Doing things outside your comfort zone works. Oh right, and the GRAND CANYON! Click on through for the full story.
A short update this week. I'm gushing about my first visit to a desert. Joshua Tree National Park was one of the most amazing places I've visited so far on my journey and I can't wait to visit more desert area soon. Read on for pictures and love.
Feels like I've been in California for quite a while (because I have). It's a big state with so much to see and I've barely seen a fraction. It's been awesome to explore, spend time remembering the city life, and spending some extra time with good friends. I'm loving this place but it's about time to move on. Read on for some memories (including my first bear sighting) from this fine state and plans for next steps.
Yes, I am still here, doing just fine, and still on the journey. I had to take a brief hiatus because of a death in the family. I'll be back on the road soon but first a short reflection on death and difficult times, and the memory of my grandmother Marguerite. Click through for some realism.
