Happy New Year

This year, I spent New Year’s Day in Joshua Tree with my two loves. Okay three. The Mr., the Jr. and my camera.

Too  much time has passed since I’ve been out in the middle of the desert. Waking up at sunrise, breathing in fresh clean air. No amount of coffee in the world can energize me the way being in nature can.

We hiked many trails and marveled at the sunset while sitting atop Jumbo Rocks.

I love living in the city but I need trips like these to revitalize me. Getting out in nature is so good for the soul. I don’t believe in resolutions but this year I vow to take quarterly trips out to national parks.

Let’s go 2016. Show me what you got. Have camera, will travel.
