Chicago….Why not?

Chicago….Why not?

I was in the process of planning my trip to Yosemite, CA and I just wasn’t feeling it.

I had already asked for the time off from work, I had planned what I wanted to see and do, and all I had left was where I would be staying while there.

I don’t know why it didn’t feel right, but I think it had something to do with over exploring California so much right now. I wanted something different,…

Why do I travel?

Why do I travel?

What really is the point of leaving your home and spending your hard earned money to go somewhere else?

I don’t like my job, and I spend hours upon miserable hours working to make enough money to pay my bills and to save up as much as I can to put towards my next trip. Then I spend almost everything I saved up leaving my bank account empty again and start the process over. What…

View of the Statue of Liberty from liberty park in New Jersey. I really enjoyed walking through the park along the river with views of the statue, New York City, and Ellis island. #newyork #newyorkcity #statueofliberty #libertypark #newjersey #travel #wanderlust

California: Kings Canyon

On a random Saturday I decided I needed to go somewhere new. It had been a while since I last went somewhere I hadn’t been before. After some research I had Kings Canyon come up a few times in searches as a place to see. I Googled images on Kings Canyon and it was definitely a place I wanted to see. It helped that my America the Beautiful National Park pass had just come in the mail.

20 mule teams pulled borax across the desert in these carts. They took the borax that was mined in Death Valley to the nearest city, which wasn’t very near. #roadtrip #deathvalley #travel #solotravel #solofemaletravel #20muleteam #california #desert

The Badlands in Death Valley, CA. I really like the name Badlands and always wanted to visit the ones in South Dakota. I love the contrasting colors between the badlands and the mountains behind them. #roadtrip #deathvalley #california #solofemaletravel #solotravel #badlands #travel #scenery #hiking

The Devil’s Golf Course. When the elements combine they create these roundish formations, the salt in the ground gives it a white color. #california #deathvalley #devilsgolfcourse #roadtrip #solofemaletravel #mmad #wanderlust #adventure

California: Death Valley

I have been talking about going to Death Valley for a while now, but I kept putting it off. I did not want to go there in my old car because I had no air conditioning, and that did not seem like a good idea. I also did not trust my car not to overheat or break down while I was out there. So about a month ago I finally turned in my old car and bought myself a brand new car, with air conditioning,…

I love seeing quirky little things like this. Especially out in the middle of nowhere. At the fork in the road for the racetrack and hunter mountain is teakettle junction. People tie their teakettles to it. I saw someone out there doing this as I drove by. #travel #california #deathvalley #teakettlejunction #roadtrip #solotravel #solofemaletravel #deserts #sideoftheroad

Grand Canyon south rim. This was part of the roadtrip my brother and I did. I didn’t want to stay until sunset since I was exhausted, but he told me I had to. It was worth it. #roadtrip #grandcanyon #arizona #southrim #sunset #travel #nationalparks
