The Perfect 72 Hours In San Francisco

In the past eight years I’ve live west coast I’ve been to every major city, but San Francisco. Yes, it is embarrassing to admit and no I’m, not sure how that happened. After visiting I promised myself that it wouldn’t be my last trip. The drive in was unbearably hot and clear. Which made things…

Getting A New View

Trash, grime, construction, and all the nasty things that come with living in the city it’s easy to see nothing but the ugly around us. Sometimes I need to remove myself from all of that and be reminded of the beauty of the city. Be reminded how about how Seattle is a city surrounded and engulfed…

Feeling Tiny

After driving for 6+ hours to a hotel in the middle of nowhere, no really it was the middle of nowhere we came to Kahneeta. It’s hard to describe the trip because it wasn’t about what we did so much as the land around us. It was breathtaking. What makes this place so awesome: We…

6 Hours Across Washington

One moment we are here, in a city that was built as the background for the Jetsons and the next…. …next we are in Snow White’s village in the mountains. Yes, I compare every moment of my life to what TV show or cartoon I may be in. It is what starts most of my…
