Trying to take in the beauty of spring even though the heart is heavy with everything going on.
Yellowstone National Park, June 2018 (part 1)
Last month we made a family trip to Yellowstone.
The park is incredibly vast and so beautiful. It was our very first trip and we spent 5 days exploring as much as we could. The landscape changes dramatically from epic canyons, to open valleys, to lush forests to open lakes and streams. The hiking trails are wonderful.
I loved the eastern part of the park the best, especially Lamar Valley. There was so much wildlife around each corner and seeing all the bear cubs playing in the meadow was something I will not forget.
A few weeks ago, Lauren and I took some time to celebrate our anniversary.
We started the week in the desert, exploring and hiking in Joshua Tree National Park and Coachella Valley Preserve. I visited Joshua Tree on my own a few years back and it was so much better to make the return trip with my wife.
After a few days we drove west and spent the rest of the week relaxing at the beach. The west side of LA has really grown on me.
Twenty three years and counting with my best friend. Luckiest guy ever.
