Six or Ten Miles

Happy Friday friends, What’s your favorite way to beat the heat? Swimming? Traveling away from the heat? Staying indoors? Anyone of those is a fun way to do it. And I definitely find myself doing all three. This last week though, I spent a day in the bay. If you aren’t familiar with Northern California,…

WhatSUP Kelsey

Hey there friends, Okay, so I finally did something I have always wanted to do. I went out and bought myself a paddle board. Let me just tell you how insanely lucky that day was for me. So it started out as I was taking my car in to have the A/C repaired (I had…

Homage

Good day, dear soul Have you ever paid homage to someone? It’s quite the experiment in creativity. To attempt to recreate an artwork. Or to go deeper and attempt to create a piece of art in the exact style of an artist. Well, we were assigned just that. As our professor showed examples of influential photographers,…

Passage of Time

Well hi there folks, It’s been awhile. But we’ve made it! It’s summer! Okay now how many of us will be taking summer courses? Just me? haha okay, well I have some freedom for now 🙂 That being said I thought I would share with you some of the pictures I took for other assignments…

Hidden Falls

More adventures with the happy pup 🙂 Not even a week into the new year and I’ve already gone on a hike with only Ruckus to keep me company! I am so proud of this. We went up to Hidden Falls State Park in Auburn. And it was a beautiful, chilly day. A quick PSA, if…

Pier 39 & Baker Beach

One of my favorite things about living where I do, is being only a couple hours from San Fransisco. A couple weekends ago, my dad and I took advantage of that short distance and visited the wonderful place with my pup in tow. We started out at Baker Beach, where Ruckus made a friend, played lots…

Solo Adventures

Sometimes you get to take fun trips for school. Back in primary school they were field trips, but those don’t really exist in college. Or do they? This past semester I took a Physical Anthropology course, in which we have a section on studying primates. Which obviously means the lab requires you to visit the…

Ayiti 2016

I feel guilty. I keep mentioning little tidbits about Haiti and teasing you all, saying I’ll share soon! So instead of keeping you waiting until I’ve processed all the details, here is a post about what most people really want to see: what Haiti looks like! Happy Fun Friday friends (alliterations are always appropriate ((see…

The Confluence

My favorite place for a nice trail and refreshing swim. Hi friends :] As summer is closing we are making the best of our free time and are hitting up the river or confluence or beach practically every weekend. Which makes for a bunch of adventure posts for you guys! I think I might invest…

Hot Midday Hike

Hi there friends 🙂 Happy Fun Friday! As I’ve mentioned before, we live in Northern California. A place full of small mountains near the valley and hot weather in the summer. But we don’t let that stop us! There is a collection of easy trails to wander along less than an hour from where we…

a spiritually refreshing hike

Happy Weekend to you lovely people :] Although today is the end, yesterday was a blast. Rather, a rest. A much needed hike and wander along the trails here in Northern California. The river running like crazy after recent storms, beautiful sunny day with a wonderful cooling breeze. . I went on this hike with…

Suburbian Trails

Who doesn’t love a good weekend adventure? Even if it isn’t some big exploration of land and sites, but simply wandering and viewing a trail. Adventuring makes the soul happy, at least that’s how I see it. Ruckus and I love long weekend walks, and luckily there are plenty of fun paths tucked in the…
