"Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche easily in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them, but usually I do not understnad..and seldom do they understnad me. I am on of the searches. There are, I believe, millionsof us. We are not unhappy, but n neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hiddern rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter; to share our sadness with the ones we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know. Unless it is to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious but only for life itself and anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevail our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life, everything which is good and beautiful." ~Found in the door of a deserted store in Colorado

Southern California Road Trip 2008

Jackson is fantastic and wonderful in many ways, but after a long winter, we are ready to leave the valley and go some place warm and sunny! So, Jenny and I decided to take a road trip to southern California. Our first destination was Carlsbad, CA (just north of San Diego) to beach camp for 2 nights and then we drove up the coast and chilled on the beach in Huntington Beach and then on to Ventura, CA where we took the ferry boat over to the Channel Islands National Park. We hiked and camped on Santa Cruz Island for a couple days and then we continued on to Yosemite National Park to hike and camp for a couple days as well. After Yosemite, we headed home to Jackson (where it is still fairly chilly but a lot of snow has melted off so that is good).

For both Jenny and I, this was our first trip to CA so we really enjoyed all of the new experiences and adventures! I took a ton of pictures but none of them really due the sites we saw any justice. But I wanted to share all of them with you, so below is a link for you to view them..ENJOY! :)
