Driving some 4,000 miles in a couple of weeks. Hiking and exploring multiple national parks was a dream. I had wanted to do something like this for awhile. Being able to and being able to photograph it all was such a blessing. California has so many stunning views, it was amazing to see all the different topography of the land and to watch it change as we traveled. Here’s some photos from various parks and other parts of California. If you feel inclined to purchase any of my photos please visit the link.
The first day we arrived in Joshua Tree was amazing it was a nice change from Death Valley they are both beautiful but it was nice to see some vegetation in the desert. Being able to scramble around on the rocks and hike will there was a cool breeze was also nice. Joshua Tree is a dark sky park which made it easy to see the moon and stars so clearly.To purchase prints visit my website.
I had decided to make the drive to the white mountains for a sunset hike at Ancient Bristlecone pine tree park. These trees are some of the oldest in the world being around 4,000 years old and older. The trail around the forest is staggeringly beautiful. The Dolomite rocks, strange blue pine cones and wind swept trees made for a surreal and special evening.

Next on the road trip is Death Valley. It was a drastic change from Mammoth lakes but still very beautiful in its own way. I decided to hike earlier in the morning to see the sunrise and to try and avoid the heat. That being said I did go out one evening while it was 106 degrees. Death Valley is a place that surprised me with all it had to offer it’s a really amazing park. If interested in purchasing any of my photos visit my website or if you can DM.
I’ve wanted to go on a road trip for quite sometime now. Planning one during everything that’s been going on this past year provided a little difficult, however we managed to go and set out on HWY 395 in search of epic scenery. The first stop was Yosemite National Park. If you would like prints of my photos please DM me or visit my website.
