Switzerland 2019

I just returned from ten days touring Switzerland, spending time in Luzern, Interlaken, Bern, and Fiesch. Of course, so many parts of Switzerland are so stunningly beautiful that it just takes your breath away. While I was there, it snowed in a good chunk of the country, leaving about a meter of fresh snow in … Continue reading Switzerland 2019

The Eastern Sierra and Pacific Northwest

It's October and that means it was road trip time (I'm in a rut—this is the third year in a row that I've taken a road trip the first week of October). If you really want the gory details of the entire trip, you can read about them here. Suffice it to say, it was … Continue reading The Eastern Sierra and Pacific Northwest

Sunset on the Sunrise Highway II

Up until yesterday, my only experience with the San Bernardino Mountains was either driving over the Cajon Pass on Interstate 15, or viewing them from a … Continue reading Recon Trip to Big Bear Lake

Lone Pine and the Alabama Hills

My trip to the Alabama Hills last month really inspired me, so I decided to return for the three-day Veterans Day weekend. It was a short trip, but a rewarding one. Saturday's sunrise wasn't as spectacular as the one for my trip in October, but decent nonetheless. I also took a little detour up Whitney … Continue reading Lone Pine and the Alabama Hills

Eastern Sierra and Lake Tahoe

The first week of October 2017, I took a long-awaited photographic excursion from San Diego up the eastern Sierra to Lake Tahoe. Visited places included the Alabama Hills, Manzanar National Historic Site, Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest, June Lake, and Bodie State Historical Park on my way to Lake Tahoe. You can read about the full … Continue reading Eastern Sierra and Lake Tahoe
