2016 brought me new adventures on the West Coast. Being an “East Coast” girl my entire life, I found myself in the last 10 years wanting to see what all the hype was about… February 2016 found me on a plane, ready for my adventure.
I settled into the Santa Cruz/South Bay area and am amazed on an almost daily basis, at the beauty in my proverbial “backyard”.
It’s funny to me when I meet people out here, some who have called California their home for their entire life, and they ask me where I’ve been/what I’ve see soo far…And turns out, I’ve seen more than most! The wanderlust spirit is strong for me out here and I crave adventuring. I’ve essentially traveled the entire PCH from Northern Oregon down to SoCal. I’ve been to countless State and National Parks and and seen trees that defy everything that you think is possible, winding roads that sometimes feel like a roller-coaster ride, and a coastline that is powerful, dramatic and breathtaking. I don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface.
I’m excited to see what adventures and sights I encounter in 2017…The views never seem to get old.
These are some of my favorite shots that sum up 2016.
