Our long and fruitful journey across the country has subsided as we now begin life in our new home, Bend Oregon. We’ve visited America’s Edens and wastelands, deserts and blue lakes, cities and massive temples of nature out of the back of my Chevrolet and from the tops of many mountains. The two of us traveled across ten states and celebrated seven national and state parks each with all of our possessions shoved into a trunk smaller than my new bathtub. Comfort was a subjective memory at times, however, this long awaited trip was essential. It recaptured our attention, rejuvenated our craving for bewildering natural phenomenons, and prepared our minds for a new time and fresh places.
Check out a quick sample of pictures below:
Our summer cups have been filled and are still overflowing. Over the last two months we have exhausted ourselves in the desert sun only to swim through and drink from forest waterfalls and rock pools the next day. After three time zones we’re settling into our new homes in Oregon; developing intricate relationships with our new houseplants and opening ourselves to crisp and present positives.
