Travel

The last month and a half has been crazy with travel, which has led to a serious lack of updates on the blog. Not that I can complain, because it's been awesome. It started with a road trip up to San Francisco. Then a week later, another road trip up the California coast with notable stops in Morro Bay, Mendocino, Shelter Cove, and Paso Robles. Right when that ended, I flew to Boston for another shoot. Then spent a little time in up-state NY with family. Flew back to San Diego, and days later started a roadtrip up through California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alberta, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada. All this following up a month that saw a trip to Costa Rica and a roadtrip out to Colorado. Covered a lot of miles, saw a lot of incredible places, did a lot of shooting, and I'm excited to share. Stay tuned.

 


Niagra Falls

On New Years Day, I was driving through upstate New York on my way back to San Diego. And found myself close enough to Niagra Falls that I shouldn't pass it up. Why not? Had never been there before, and figured it was a good time to cross it off the list? My expectations weren't that high, as I sort of expected it just to be a tourist trap. And it was definitely that, but it also couldn't have been more impressive. I had heard that the place to see it is from the Canada side, which I did. The power was amazing. As you walk in, you're eye level with the huge river of water that takes the turn into the falls. Then you keep walking, and you're right at the end of the falls where everything drops. And it's almost impossible to wrap your head around how big it is and how much water is flowing over the falls as any given moment. A very cool thing to see.  If you ever find yourself in that area, put in the extra effort to stop in. Depending on the time and day of the week, crossing the border is not bad at all. Well worth it.
