Hangin’ Out the Passenger Side

For four days I accompanied my good friend on a road trip. She had just finished up an artist in residence position at the Mojave National Preserve and was looking for a friend to make the long haul back home to Seattle. I flew into Las Vegas, where she picked me up, and immediately whisked me off into the nearby desert. Here are some photos I took from our journey. For more, visit my Flickr album!

San Diego, California

Some photos from my recent trip to San Diego this past weekend.

Balboa Park
We’ll have to go back. Museums, all this awesome scenery, gardens, fountains. Acres of things to see and do.

De Anza Cove Park at Mission Bay
The site of our family reunion. We were there at 6:00 a.m. to snag a spot for our all-day event. The marine layer hovers over San Diego till about maybe 9:30-10:00 and then the sun starts to peek through.

View from the Town & Country “Resort”that we stayed in. Next time, I’ll find better accommodations that don’t have not-easy-to-see fees.
