Vacation 17 – In June & July 2017 I finally did it right: I visited my family in Wisconsin FIRST.
I took my mom up to Bayfield, WI.
Then I camped near Mt Rushmore & Yellowstone (which amazed me a second time in my life).
I was in Seattle a while & spent my birthday celebrating Seattle Pride!
After that I drove down the Oregon & California coasts, & fell in love with Joshua Tree again.
After Tuscon I didn’t dehydrate seeing Saguaro National Park, before my car was plastered in bugs coming in to Marfa.
Road Summer – The 2016 summer went west to Marfa, White Sands, made a proper turn at Albuquerque, saw LA again, San Francisco, Portland & stopped in Seattle for over a week.
Coming down from from Mt Rainier, my passenger power window failed. I got it fixed but had to cut my trip short, again (see below) & returned to Austin via Boise & Denver.
Exploring 2015 – June and July again, but in 2015.
Same places mostly as 2014 and 2016 something prevented me from visiting family in Wisconsin!
This time I was able to be impressed by San Diego!
Roadtrip St. Louis – Visited friends in St. Louis September 2014.
It is a beautiful city with pockets of gentrification but even the run-down parts still show a beautiful old soul.
Massive Road Trip 2014 – My first major road trip was copied by 2015 & 2016. West to Pacific & hanging in Seattle, ventured into a very rainy Vancouver, then needed to head to Austin due to time restraints. This time the trajectory home was Boise, Provo & Denver.
However this year I shot Vacancy Mojave, one of my favorite photos!
Montréal 2008 – I have taken trips between 2008 and 2014, but Montreal was one of the first trips where I had a DSLR, my Canon Digital Rebel. It’s a city dear to me and I hope to visit again sometime soon!
