Im going to start right off with some fun comparison photos from past and present travels with this power group.
First photo is a picture we snapped in the sacred city of Machu Picchu. Without knowing what the others were doing, we all agreed this would make a great album cover!
Second album cover comes from Yosemite, California.
Girls will be girls… Night trek to Aguascalientes followed by volunteering in Huambutio and a night in Mammoth.
Ninja shot in Machu Picchu!
Ninja shot in Yosemite!
Attempt at an over the head group shot…
…and again in The Redwoods!
Well that was fun! Now moving on to a local brewery in Mammoth. This is the tasting room in which they eagerly share their latest creations while bragging on their oldies but goodies. If you’re a beer connoisseur or even just a fan of trying new things, this pit stop is well worth it!
Back to the outdoors as they treat us to our last night in this beautiful part of Central California. Do you see that street with hot springs and camp sites? Me neither. That’s the beauty of this hidden gem!
If you know about this special place, the view will remind you of the short journey it takes to reach the hot springs.
The 2ft deep pool is built of rocks and cement making it just the right size to fit a small group of people. Fed by natural hot springs in the Eastern Sierra, water is piped in and controlled by a hot water valve. This spout keeps the temperatures maintained in the low 100’s, to prevent extreme heat for anyone taking a soak. The pool also faces the Sierra Nevada’s, which makes for an incredible backdrop!
After 2 adventurous days packed with activities, we now find it perfect timing to indulge in natures little hot tub. I must say our wardrobe choices awkwardly compliment one another.
Well thank you amazing universe for this incredible sunset to compliment our midnight dip.
Dear Ann and Colin, from the moment we met, I knew this was a friendship that was far beyond a “hello” and “goodbye” in Ecuador. With Peru following and a reunion in California, I continue to keep my hopes high with another connection abroad!
Hayden, you are what some define as a “trooper”. You jumped in, buckled up and made this ride even more memorable. Thank you!
I am surrounded by quality people that I’m proud to call my friends.
