My “Backyard”

Today was just one of those days where I wanted to stretch out, breathe, and relax. It’s nice knowing a place like this is so close and accessible to home.

Winter Road Trip: Day 2

_G5A3716

After a good night’s rest…well, sort of (due to how cold it got), we continued our adventure. Once we woke up, we made some breakfast and packed up our stuff to do some hiking in the state park we were already at, Big Trees State Park.

We started to get really tired and hungry, so decided it was best to head back towards home.

It’s crazy to think that something this close to home existed. People often take what’s nearby us for granted. There’s so much more out there if you search for it. So the next time you or someone you know says something such as, “There’s nothing to do around here” then take the time (to tell them) to do some research and the motivation to explore unknown areas. It’s not about being into the “outdoors stuff”, just learn appreciate the simple things in life.

Winter Road Trip: Day 1

_G5A3351

My friend and I spent our Monday and Tuesday along highway CA-4, also known as Ebbetts Pass. Ebbetts Pass is a very beautiful scenic road through the Sierra Nevada. Ebbetts Pass peak is at around 8,700+ ft! However, because of how cold it was, the rest of Ebbett’s Pass past Lake Alpine (7,000 ft+) was closed. We decided to camp at Big Trees State Park (4,700+ ft). After we set up camp, we headed east towards Lake Alpine for an adventure.

The sun had started to set really early (around 4-5pm) and quickly, too. The temperature dropped rapidly too, so we made our way back to camp to get some nice warm dinner started._G5A3660 _G5A3690 _G5A3675

Though the daytime was short, it was well worth it. It was a race against time to capture photos of the beautiful scenery, and preparing some food then to getting ready to go to sleep was very satisfying.
