So stupid that it's my car.
Sunday, September 29, 2013
After a long day, I pull into the driveway, I turn off my car and I sit. I recoup. I'm ready for the day to be over, but I'm not ready to go inside. The car is so quiet. It reminds me of being in the woods. Which is silly, because it's a car, but it has an incredibly calming effect on my soul. My safe space.

(Is that the portugues version of yolo?)
My father is a beekeeper. Well, he became one this year. We harvested our honey a couple weeks ago.
After being attack by the bees (seriously, it was the Thomas/My Girl experience I had nightmare about as a child, but I did only get stung once) we got down to business:
That one time for my birthday...
This year I turned 27. So I went to Havasupai to celebrate. Almost.
It got flooded. A lot. We unfortunately didn't find out till we were there at the trailhead.
(The sadness in this picture is overwhelming.)
So we went to Sedona instead. Not an equal trade by a long shot, but still fun.
(Slide Rock State Park)
We did an overnighter up the West Fork Canyon. This is where we camped:
(My little tent under the little lean-to)
(Looking pretty good for a 27yo.)The first three mile you criss-cross the river until the trail ends and you hike in the river for the next 3 miles.
Arizona is the prettiest.
Then of course we thought it'd be a good idea to go to the Grand Canyon. We camped in Kaibob National Forest, right outside the park.
I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I had no idea I'd experience the awe that I did. It was incredible.
