Yosemite National Park, CA

Coming to Yosemite National Park in CA again was such a wonderful highlight of our trip. We ended up staying two hours outside the park, but still came to visit a second day. These are a few of the popular spots in and around the valley that we enjoy. I would love to go back for a whole week and camp out. I want to see Mono Lake especially.

Crater Lake National Park, OR

Visiting Crater Lake National Park is one of those places that really challenges your perspective of space and distance. Before arriving, everything is pretty desolate and so upon coming to the edge you are immediately put in awe. Such a deep blue! And HUGE. I couldn’t really figure out how big it was until I saw a power boat the first time we came (this was our second). We barely made it in time before dark and so the lighting was full of contrast and drama. We parked at the visitor center, so if you ever wish to see these views you’ll know where to go!

Flatirons Boulder, CO

Just wanted to check in quickly and share some photos I took this morning while taking a hike with my brother up the Flatirons in Boulder, CO. I am out here in Colorado visiting him and his family. He planned to climb up a steep face with some friends and I decided to take the trail around to meet up. Me and heights aren't close buddies.

Rocky Mountain National Park, CO

So, while Chris and I were out in Colorado, my brother and his wife took me us out to see Rocky Mountain National Park despite the winter. Down in the valley of Denver, the temperature was in the 70s, but up in the mountains it was a bit cold. Still we saw some real beauty! I did alright in the altitude here, which I was happy about. I just thought I would share with you some of the beauty we got to see. It will make you want to visit. :) This here is a picture of a frozen lake.

Independence Hall, Philadelphia

I like old stuff. It survives in a modern culture and still remains classic. Old cities are a favorite as well. In roaming around Philadelphia the Old Town is probably my favorite section. It reminds me of Boston probably. It is fun to think you have walked where your forefathers walked. The struggles they went through to give you the opportunity to enjoy the day as it is. Freedom comes at a cost and I am appreciative.

Reading Terminal Market Philadelphia, PA

I can't believe it's already December! Thankfully there have a been a few days where it is warmer than usual. Yesterday was one of those days. I went with Chris and his parents into the center city of Philly just to check out the Reading Terminal Market. Most of the time was spent scoping out different foods and just seeing what it was like.

Chestnut Hill Philadelphia, PA

A few weeks ago, Chris and I happened upon this town that wasn't like any other town we have seen so far here in Pennsylvania. I was determined to come back and get some pictures of the detailed doorways and stone work. Well, one cold November day I decided to do just that. I am apprehensive about getting pictures of buildings. Always have been, but I wanted to give it a try because these buildings were just that amazing.
