Destination: Vernal Fall / Activity: Hiking / Location: Yosemite National Park

There are no words. Yosemite is a magical land full of magical things and places. My friends and I hiked to Vernal Falls on a crisp Autumn day, making the 2.5 mile hike to see the majestic 317 ft waterfall spewing from the rocks. This hike takes about 3 hours and is pretty strenuous, so you'll want to bring some snacks to keep your energy up. Begin your hike at the Happy Isles trailhead and soak in the views along the way. Somewhere along the trail you'll see another trailhead branch off - the John Muir trail - stay on track for the Mist's Trail and you'll make it to the falls in no time. There are a number of switchbacks, and quite a few cement stairs as you approach the falls. You'll hear the roar of the water rushing over the rocks as you near the destination, and you'll know you made it!

It's funny how sometimes we as humans tend to get caught up in having to do something drastic to have a little fun. Because lets face the facts, it's not always easy to book a ticket and leave for a month. Although we don't let life get in the way as an excuse, we do constantly seek to find adventure right outside our front door.

This past weekend my husband and I decided to take a little cruise of San Diego Harbor just for fun. It was primarily exploring the military and naval base which was very interesting to learn about, but we also got to see some of San Diego's most well known landmarks besides the naval base, including Hotel Del Coronado, Point Loma, a few hidden away resorts and the Coronado Bridge. We enjoyed the two hour boat ride and relaxed in the sun, breathing in the salty air! 

The great thing about Flagship cruises is that afterwards you're in the heart of downtown! Chase and I enjoyed a delicious salmon sandwich right there at a cute cafe on the bay. It was beautiful watching the sunset and enjoying the change of scenery. And let's not forget, it's about a 10-15 minute walk from Little Italy. SCORE! 

FYI: Pop on over to Without Walls and read our feature on how to plan a trip with your friends! Spring break is right around the corner, so now is the time people :)

Destination: Eastern Sierras / Location: Gus's Jerky 

When you're making the drive through the Eastern Sierras, Gus's Jerky is one of those places you just gotta stop and grab a snack. They have everything a road tripper could drool over from your salty to sweet cravings and even a few random in between-ers you just can't live without. Their jerky is bomb and the whole place just reeks of road trip charm. There's also a little chihuahua named Pepita who likes to lounge in the sun and wait for dog lovers to come give her a good rub. She's probably my favorite part about the place. We sunbathed together and ate our jerky. 


DREAMING OF FISHING

2/22/15

 Destination: Bear Valley, Idaho / Location: Elk Creek / Activity: Tenkara / Bag: Topo Designs / Rod: Tenkara Rod Co.

Anyone else ready for spring? Here's to greener days on the river. Have a great weekend!

WINTER FISHING

2/17/15

 Destination: South Fork / Location: Boise, Idaho / Activity: fishing / Rod: Tenkara Rod Co / Bag: Topo Designs

Even at 24 degrees out, not the best weather conditions, and 24 weeks pregnant we went fishing for my son's second birthday. He insisted we go, so we went! Bundled up the best we could we carefully waded through the river. The riverbanks were snowy and icy and our flies kept freezing, but it was still fun to #getoutandfish and enjoy the fresh winter air!
