Today I am officially starting a short series called A Trip to California. I am back from finishing the school year! In my previous post (disregard the fact that I just posted an update), I explained pretty much everything you need to know about what is happening with this series. Click here to go see the introductory post.
To briefly state what was said in that post, I will summarize my two-week vacation I took last September. The first post will consist of the drive to California, the second will be about our stay in California, and the third will probably be a shorter post about the return home. There will be plenty of pictures so that you won't have to imagine anything in your head.
A helpful little fact to know is that I journaled most of our trip over the two weeks we were traveling. I want to really show the beauty of the world more than anything since I got to see so much. But what I noticed is that if I copied everything I wrote down in my journal, it would most likely take a couple months before I finish. And I didn't like that idea, so I put together all the best pictures I took and I will briefly talk about them.
With that, here is part one of A Trip to California.
|On our second day of travelling, we visited Garden of the 'gods.' One of the only places in Colorado that has some beautiful red rock like Utah.|
|One thing my family always loves to do is to go hiking. Garden of the 'gods' has some great trails we went on. Though they were pretty long, the reward was breathtaking.|
|I used this picture for my blog banner, isn't this just beautiful? I can't believe the stupid amount of sunset pictures I took, but this is one of my favorites. I captured this on our first night at the Grand Canyon.|
|Fun fact: This is a Western Scrub Jay. I tried to get a picture of this bird for three days. From Garden of the 'gods' to the Grand Canyon, I finally captured a picture of this beautiful bird on our second day in the Canyon.|
I hope you all were interested in knowing what we did back in September. I can't wait to get the rest of the trip out to you guys. Please leave feedback in the comments below letting me know what you think. I think it would be awesome to know if others like my photography style and if they want to see more.
