The Trip to Bountiful


So, I’m late on my blog post this week, but I’ve been recovering from a week of traveling adventures and I don’t have a lot to say. I had the pleasure of spending the 4th of July at a beautiful cabin on Lake Tahoe. From clouds, to sunshine, to stars, to hail and lightening, we had all forms of weather on this trip and I tried to document it as much as possible. Below are a few photos that highlight the journey through Lone Pine and beyond:

If you haven't been to Tahoe (or made the drive there), do it! The 395 route from LA was well worth the trip and an amazing way to explore parts of both Calfiornia and Nevada that time may have forgotten.
