On February 2017, Mayra (my friend) and I went on an exciting adventure to the not-so-touristy side of California. We explored what I like to call post-apocalyptic gems located somewhere between LA and San Diego.

Important Note: At first, I didn’t really enjoy Joshua Tree National Park, but spending a full day here (at my own pace, of course) made me appreciate this park more than before.

Michael and I are back in good ol’ California for another fun adventure! We’re off to one of the hottest places on Earth, Death Valley National Park.

This was a continuation of Michael and Little Nug’s month-long road trip last year. We took a side stop to Mono Lake after exploring Yosemite for a bit.
