The Donut Hole, La Puente: A Drive Thru Donut

A couple weeks ago I was researching cool places to go in LA and stumbled upon The Donut Hole of La Puente. My sister is a huge fan of donuts so naturally I had to check it out and see if it was as awesome as the pictures made it seem. It is not everyday […]

Fingerprints Record Store: The Horrible Crowes

Finding myself in a good record store is how I would imagine antique lovers feel about a good vintage shop. I love to browse the aisles looking for hidden treasure, be that a CD from my youth that brings nostalgia or a record of a band that I have been waiting to pick up. When […]

Hiking to the San Jacinto Summit from the Tram

About a year ago a couple friends and I set out to hike to the San Jacinto Summit from where the tram lets out. Without much research we went into it thinking this would be a pretty simple hike as the tram drops you off at 8500 feet and the summit is only 10500; however, […]

Tide Pools of Little Corona Del Mar

I have always been intrigued by the limitless and extraordinary life that seems to exist in our planet’s oceans. I am a huge fan of aquariums, have snorkeled dozens of times and have a hard time turning off Shark Week even though it’s the same thing every year. For this reason, I am a fan […]

Salvation Mountain: Photos and Stories from a Truly Unique Mountain

Salvation Mountain is one of those little know gems that you stumble upon and can’t really decide whether it is awesome or inspiring or both. It is nested in the heart of the Salton Sea (which has its own unique backstory) in a town called Niland and truly does have to be experienced to be believed. […]

Bridge to Nowhere Azusa, CA Photographic Journey

The bridge to nowhere is one of the hikes I have been wanting to do for over a year. The bridge history is as follows: the bridge was originally built to be a road that connects Azuza through the mountains to another highway, so the road was built all the way up to the bridge, […]
