When we originally visited Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park earlier this year, I had every intention of trying out sandboarding for the first time. Since I love snowboarding so much, I thought maybe sandboarding would be just as fun. Unfortunately, we got to the park later than expected due to some last-minute changes so we ended up just taking pictures around the sand dunes. If you are planning on visiting, the big thing that


We only had an afternoon to visit Valley of Fire State Park so we decided to use our time wisely and just go straight to the Fire Wave. Valley of Fire State Park is located about an hour north of Las Vegas, Nevada by car. The Fire Wave is famous because of the way the sandstone is made up of different layers of red, pink, and white sediment that resembles an ocean wave. Most people


For today's blog post, I thought it would be fun to list what I thought were the ten best Instagram spots around Honolulu. As much as I have a love-hate relationship with Instagram, I always find myself trying to find Instagram-worthy locations to take pictures of. Even though I am way more comfortable taking pictures behind the camera, I know one day I'll appreciate the pictures that I'm in. Granted, Instagram has taken photography to


Have you heard of Peek-a-Boo and Spooky Slot Canyons? Well, I hadn't until I was searching for hikes to do at Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. If you have been following along on my previous posts, you would know we just visited Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon National Park. The last stop on our Utah trip was Grand Staircase Escalante (GSE) National Monument. I wished we could have traveled farther to Capitol Reef, Canyonlands,


The Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden Trail were at the top of our list when we visited Bryce Canyon National Park this past December. This trail is made up of two separate trails that connect at the bottom of the canyon: Navajo Loop and Queen's Garden. If you only have time for one big trail I would highly suggest this one. There's a reason why it's the most popular trail. All the famous sites are


Watching the sunrise over Inspiration Point in Bryce Canyon was one of the most beautiful moments I experienced on this trip. I want to first start off by saying though that it was unbearably COLD! The coldest temperatures I've ever experienced in my life. Since we started before sunrise, the temperature outside was already at 0 °F. What I didn't factor in was the wind chill which made it -18 °F below! I was DYING.


I must have been crazy to want to hike Angels Landing in the dead of winter. I've been to Zion National Park multiple times during the summer, but never during the winter. This was going to be my first time. I seriously couldn't wait and was planning like a madwoman for months. I've never hiked Angels Landing, let alone in the winter, so I really didn't know what to expect. I've seen so many pictures


On the second installment of my photography series (first installment can be found here), we're going to visit Palouse Falls in Washington. When I first heard about Palouse Falls, I thought it would be an excellent place to shoot some landscape photography. Luckily, we were already in the city of Walla Walla, Washington on a wine tasting trip so we decided we would make an afternoon trip of it. Originally, we had planned on doing


When we first planned our Oregon trip, I knew that I wanted to visit Toketee Falls. I saw a lot of amazing photos and I couldn't help but want one for myself. When I was researching Toketee Falls and how to get to the bottom, I couldn't find that much information on it. I figured that I must not be the only person so I thought I would start a Photography Series on how I
