Trip Reports

What's it like on the road? These stories will give you a glimpse into those experiences.

In 2018, I self-converted my campervan and committed myself to always living an adventurous life. I value physical research of the world through my own experiences on the road. These are the stories of those experiences, showcasing both my photography and writing.

Yosemite Valley - Winter

"I gave myself a personal assignment to chase a storm heading toward Yosemite Valley. Leading up to the trip, the weather was changing daily and I wasn’t sure if I was going to score. The night before we left, a high weather advisory was rolled out for snow up to 13 inches."​

Zion Nat'l Park

"Winding our way down the road, I don’t think I blinked once. I was amazed, fascinated, and shocked by what was above us. Red walls towering toward the sky making us feel like we were in some sort of Jurassic Park scene. The road never ended, every turn presented a different perspective of the rocks around. It took us a good 30 minutes to make it to camp, but I wish it was longer."

bryce canyon nat'l park

"We hurried to the ridge of the canyon with hopes of catching a hike with blue skies. Overlooking the canyon, vibrant hues of oranges, greens, and blues surprised our eyes. It’s safe to say we scored."

Grand Canyon Nat'l Park

"As we drove into the park for the first time, I didn’t know what to expect. Winding down the roads, I began to feel anxious. I didn’t want to look out the window of my van because I wanted to take it in properly. We pulled up to the rim, threw the van in park, and hustled near the edge. And, there she was."

end of summer - prana

"As summer comes to its close, we scrambled for one more adventure. What better way to end the season than a 10-day road trip in the van. After flipping through photos and listening to stories, we decided to drive to Sedona, Bryce Canyon National Park, Zion National Park, and the Grand Canyon."

Yosemite Nat'l park - Spring

"In a world filled with so much noise and commotion, it’s common to crave separation to ease our minds. With the constant juggling of our day-to-day tasks, friends, relationships, and passions, we all just need solitude and silence. This is when I look to the outdoors."

Alabama hills

"With the van finally ready for the road, we set out for Alabama Hills and prepped for temperatures below 20 degrees."

Want to know one of my favorite feelings in the world? 

You've wrapped up a full day on the trails, and you’re just about completely burnt out. You find your way to the general store, grab a couple of beers, and mosey your way back to nature. Your legs feel like they’re filled with led, but in the best way possible—a sign of a successful day outside. Your feet slowly drag the weight of the day underneath you, your eyes glaze over the beauty of the outdoors, and you crack open your beer spraying some on your hand. 

As you take a deep breath of some of the freshest air in the world, you immerse yourself in your surroundings and feel gratitude ripple through every cell of your body. You don’t feel entirely worthy, but you appreciate the moment for exactly what it is: perfection.
