I’ve lived in Kansas City, MO for a year now and I’ve had the itch to discover the nature in this neck of the woods. Last weekend, I made the long trek (5.5 hours in a car) to the Ozark National Forest in the Ozark Mountains. Here it is! Whitacker Point in Arkansas. The hike itself was very easy and should only take an hour or so (if you’re not taking tons of photos). It was the drive to the trailhead […]
I recently spent over 2 weeks in California for work. (If you’re into this blog, and you aren’t following my other blog–check out on instagram or wordpress.) It was grueling and so insanely fun. Take the quick tour with me below at some of my favorite spots we shot: 1.) Galt, California 2.) Nevada City, CA 3.) Grass Valley, CA 4.) Lake Tahoe 5.) Homewood Ski Resort 6.) Five Marys Farm in Fort Jones I wore my Nike ACG Boots, pictured […]

Things to do in Montana: Yellowstone The Tinsley House in Bozeman Walk the mainstreet of Bozeman to windowshop Blacksmith Italian Restaurant Dave’s Sushi Montana Ale Works Visit Amaltheia Organic Dairy Farm Glacier National Park
Big Bend is a big, beautiful national park in west Texas. When people who aren’t from Texas picture Texas, this is what they imagine. I went exploring with friend around the park. We found a hot springs and few of us were brave enough to float down the Rio Grande. Stay tuned for a Mars themed surprise at the end of the post.
Here are my last images from my New Zealand trip. These were all taken on the way to the airport on the North Island. Get a load of that giant eel in the lake! (see below) Hopefully I’ll see you soon, NZ. What a wonderful, insanely unique country!
As you’ve seen on my travels around the North Island of New Zealand, there are tons of Lord of the Rings locations you can visit (like Hobbiton and various Middle Earth locations). Here are a few LOTR locations on the South Island:
The Remarkables (the mountain ranges show below) were all over Lord of the Rings. Seeing their beauty IRL, it’s easy to see why. Check out the views from an insane helicopter ride just outside of Queenstown, New Zealand. Watch the video below for an idea of what the helicopter ride was like. However, New Zealanders have an intense hunger for danger and adventure. If you’re going to get in a helicopter there, be prepared that these guys are lunatics–fun lunatics–but […]
Queenstown in New Zealand is so amazing, even the drive into town is out-of-control-beautiful. This city is like a Disney World for grown ups. It’s the home of the jetboat (an insane boat ride with 360s and death stops that made me laugh uncontrollably because I was so nervous) and full of plenty of other ways to risk your life doing adventure sports, be it bungee jumping or helicopter rides with crazy pilots.Here’s the view of Queenstown from the hill. […]
Franz Josef Glacier is on the South Island of New Zealand. It was a hike to get there, but one of the greatest hikes I’ve ever been on. Follow along on my adventure below. Rock stacking is a discipline. At least, that’s what Wikipedia told me. I love finding these during my travels. It’s always nice to remember that there are rock-loving kindred spirits out there in the world.This beautiful chunk of glacier has been in a rapid retreat since […]
