Spring break 2016! Pack up your sun hat, winter coat, and road trip snacks. You get to come with me to the Southwest. This year is a superbloom year in Death Valley, CA. Who knew 1/4″ of rain could yield so much color?

“Zzzzzzzzzip!” If you are lucky, you know that noise, the sound of someone emerging from a tent into a brand new day. This day was on the Incan Trail, the mountains were beautiful, the clouds were low, and we had a whole entire day to hike, to discover, to be. That is the feeling I want to hang on to, because everyday (except possibly our last) we have a whole, entire day. I don’t want to loose track of that feeling of excitement, and enter my day with less than a sense of wonder and enthusiasm.
