California Adventures: 5 Must-Do’s in Joshua Tree National Park

There is no surprise that Dr. Seuss found his inspiration in Joshua Tree. When you drive into the park you feel like you just drove into a scene from one of his books. Joshua Tree is a magical place, filled with vast miles of picturesque landscapes. If you live close enough you can easily visit J-Tree in a day, but I recommend camping for a night or two. The clearness of the night sky is worth it in itself. Before you head to the park, makes sure to stop in town to get all of your supplies (like firewood). Once you…

How Being in Nature Reminds Us of Our True Nature

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” ~ John Muir During the time between Christmas and New Years, my manfriend and I headed to the mountains. I had been craving the forest. I was lusting for the feel of the crisp air on my face and the smell of the snow drenched soil. I needed to hug a tree, knowing my medicine lies within those trees and beneath the starry sky. A break was in order for us both from the high speed craziness of the city. We sat in the pizza hall at Curry Village…

Crossing Things Off the List

My blog fell a little bit on the back burner this summer, but for good reason. Since April I traveled to Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Zion, Sedona Arizona, Chicago, Rome, the South of France, Long Beach, Lopez Lake, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, and Los Angeles a handful of times. Also attended an assortment of music shows, Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, the LA County Fair, went sailing, and many dinner gatherings with friends. My summer has been jammed packed with continuous adventure that it seemed that I never got a chance to sit down and do some proper writing. So you’ll have…

California Adventures: Camping at Lopez Lake

After spending a week in the desert for Burning Man I was in need of a much needed trip to a place that housed trees. One of my favorite places to camp in California is at Lopez Lake, which is nestled in the hills and mountains about 10 miles south of San Luis Obispo. I’ve camped there twice before, first time was on my solo road trip and the second was on my way to Lightning in a Bottle. It’s a great place to visit if you have dogs and/or kids, or just if you are just wanting some time in nature….
