If Heaven Were White Sands National Monument…

To give you an idea of much I wanted you to see the actual beauty that is White Sands National Monument, I spent 5ish hours CALIBRATING MY MACBOOK SCREEN. Let that process for a moment. I could’ve been slow roasting ribs. Or napping. Or flying across the ocean to some paradise island. Or anything better…

Carlsbad Caverns

I didn’t instagram any images from Carlsbad Caverns ‘cuz… well… it’s really hard to shoot in a super dimly lit space with a cracked iPhone 5. Heck, my 5D images didn’t even turn out as well as I’d hoped (note to self/ readers: bring a tripod) but I think these give you an idea of just how…

Prada, Marfa

Since opening in 2005, Prada Marfa has become a fashion ‘destination’ of sorts for all wanderlusters interested in making a pit-stop at one of the most random, iconic installations that have nothing to do with anything.

Plus, her moms was eager to feed a sad, homeless kid… who can say…

Surfing USA

Like my boy Bueller once said: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and blog about it for a while, you could forget the details.” I may have remixed that quote a tad, but ain’t it pretty close to the truth?
