This week is the first anniversary of the Carr fire that hit my beautiful city and surrounding areas. Last year's Carr fire took out 230,000 acres of land in and took down the homes of 1000 families. And too many lost their lives. Devastating.
But I see greenery coming back, homes being rebuilt, a community growing closer, and spirits becoming strong as ever. I'm picked this image that I created a year ago to celebrate beauty is already coming out of the ashes! #ShastaStrong
The video I made didn't work out so just enjoy my artwork-remix!
I photographed this image in the summer of 2019, before I knew the desperate need of perspective, rest, clarity, and fun that we would all be longing for in 2020! Late one night, made my way carefully down the pitch-black, dirt road for the final night of my summer road trip. Photoshoot adventures are my favorite! After doing these photo-shoot adventures for years, I've found that sleeping in my tiny car at the trailhead is the best way for me to NOT oversleep for early hikes!
Here's a guide on gift ideas for your mom. I listed PROs and CONs for each category! Everything from jewelry, gadgets, to art! Designed to help you make quick, confident, great decisions. (ok yes, I'm a little partial) Enjoy
