Encinitas Sunsets

I gotta say, the one thing I probably miss the most about Encinitas (other than Board and Brew and maybe my friends) is the sunsets. That being said, I thought I’d make a post specifically to commemorate some of the most insane sunsets i’ve had the pleasure of seeing in Encinitas. Enjoy! 🙂

Big Bear Lake

Last Thanksgiving, my mom and I decided it was as good of a day as any to venture out two hours east to the San Bernardino Mountains and Big Bear. We weren’t planning on skiing or anything (in all honesty, I’m not sure what exactly it was we were planning on doing there), but driving … More Big Bear Lake

Shroom Caves

As Solana Beach’s worst kept secret, it seems that almost every local San Diegan has at least heard of the Shroom Caves. The tall, sandstone caves that are visible from the 5 freeway are a favorite hangout spot among local teenagers, and a canvas  for graffiti artists. I first heard of this place as a … More Shroom Caves

The Saxony Swing

Hiding in the heart of Encinitas is a place straight out of your average Indie film: The Saxony Swing. Named after the road you can find it on, this spot is on the intersection of Quail Gardens Road and Saxony Road, in a sweet little canyon. The first time I was brought here, we went down … More The Saxony Swing

Niagara Falls

We were finally on our way to see one of the biggest waterfalls on the planet: Niagara Falls. Being cooped up in the house for over a week now, I was way too excited that this was what I was going outside for. Arriving at the falls, we realized we were in for a trip: … More Niagara Falls

Toronto

This past weekend, I finally dragged my family out to Canada to not only get a chance to get out of the house, but to see a new city and a World Wonder or two. Our initial plan was to venture to Niagara falls for a day trip, and return home in the evening, but … More Toronto

Slide Rock State Park

Finally in the Arizona series is one of my favorite places we visited on the roadtrip; Slide Rock State Park. Located a little north of Sedona is this gorgeous haven from the hot Arizona sun: a natural waterpark surrounded by some of Sedona’s infamous red rocks. After paying a $10 entrance fee, we walked in … More Slide Rock State Park

Horseshoe Bend

Another commonly photographed spot in Arizona is Horseshoe Bend. With an amazing view of the Colorado River weaving around Page’s painted canyons, Horseshoe Bend is a popular spot for photographers and appreciators of natural beauty to visit. A trail takes you a mile west to see the beautiful place. We went around sunset on the … More Horseshoe Bend
