My tribe and I decided a quick easy-going getaway to California was exactly what we needed. If you know anything about us, the words easy-going really aren’t in our vocabulary. As you’ll see below…we did a few things on this trip!
Getting 5 peeps to the airport for a 7am is no easy task. We did it, even with a Starbucks run!
First up: drove across Cali to Sequoia National Park. Fun fact: Sequoia’s are wider around and Redwoods are taller. You are welcome.
So we took the General Sherman Trail down to see its namesake. None of the pictures you’ll see will even give you the full scope of how magnificent these trees are.
Next: Yosemite National Park. I would really like to come back here when 1) it’s off season 2) I have more time. Trying to navigate around the park was difficult when you had 5 opinions as to where you should go and millions of other visitors in your way. Despite all of the that we had an incredible day/night there!
We came back and did some night photography
This next picture was purely by accident. I was a second or two into a long exposure. Park rangers pulled someone over to the left of the picture and I was peeved because I thought that pic was now ruined. It actually turned out pretty cool, it looks like an infrared filter or something but it’s just the red & blue lights flashing together
We decided this day would be an all water day, so we got an earlier start and somehow managed to find a little private cove that became ours for the day.
The Cypress Tree tunnel is something I had found on instagram and have always wanted to go there. It’s not even a point of interest per say it’s off the beaten path!
We set up the tripod and spent a lot of time playing.
From there we drove on to Point Reyes
