Hiking the mountains of Catalina Island, we discovered scrapped metal laying in the grass.
This Manzanita bush had lost all its leaves but none of its beauty as it stretched its branches out towards my camera.
This Strawberry Poison Dart Frog made an appearance during our hike through a rainforest eco-park in La Fortuna, Costa Rica. I think she wanted to show off her 'blue jeans'.
Our kayak skims through water lilies on Big Bear Lake at 6,752 ft. in Big Bear Mountain, CA.
A hiker walks alongside a natural salt spring outside of Mojave National Desert in California.
A sign decorated with peace flags marks the elevation (10,064 ft.) and summit of Mt. Baldy in the San Gabriel Mountains of southern California.
We spotted this unmarked 'Glory Hole' formation while driving through Geyser Valley in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming.
This slot canyon we found on Lake Powell was barely wide enough for our kayak but incredibly deep.
As we hiked to the summit of Mt. Baldy we encountered a group of people repelling down a large waterfall.
My boyfriend screams hysterically as he swings out on the Tarzan Rope over the Monteverde Rainforest in Costa Rica.
