2016 Travel

2016 was a pretty good year for me travel-wise, so I decided to do a wrap up post of my favorite places and photos of the year.

San Francisco, CA

3.29.16 – 3.30.16 | work trip

My first work travel of the year was Dallas but I don’t have any fun pictures from that so we’ll begin with San Francisco (one of my absolute favorite places). This shot was taken at Baker Beach at sunset.


Sedona, AZ

4.2.16 – 4.3.16 | fun trip

I had to be in Phoenix for a work event on 4.1.16 so I decided to stay the weekend and drive to Sedona, another one of my favorites. I met my friend Leah and her dog Wrigley and we packed a lot of hiking into a day and a half.

West Fork Trail


San Diego, CA

4.17.16 – 4.19.16 | work trip

A conference brought me to San Diego. I flew in on a Sunday to go explore a bit and then spent 99% of the trip working BUT made sure to catch two sunsets. The second sunset at La Jolla Cove was one of my all-time top life experiences and my #1 favorite sunset of all time. You’ll see why from the pics.

Los Angeles – Newport Beach – Laguna, CA

5.4.16 | work trip

I had an all day meeting in Newport Beach in May. Rather than driving back to LA in traffic, we decided to kill some time walking around Laguna Beach where the views are spectacular and the real estate is insane.

San Francisco – Half Moon Bay, CA

5.22.16 | fun trip

The start of my two week National Park road trip.

Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay


Yosemite National Park

5.24.16 – 5.25.16 | fun trip

One of the coolest places on this planet (or at least in this country). My only regret is not going on a longer trip to Yosemite. I’ll definitely return in the future.

Mirror Lake


Vernal Falls

Tunnel View


Glacier Point


Sequoia – Kings Canyon National Parks

5.26.16 | fun trip

Also didn’t spend enough time here. Kings Canyon requires a 3+ hour drive to fully experience. Plan for more than a day.

Olympic National Park

5.29.16 – 5.30.16 | fun trip

Could have spent a week here… are you sensing a theme yet? Olympic National Park was amazing. Go there.

Lake Crescent


Marymere Falls

Hurricane Ridge

North Cascades National Park

5.31.16 | fun trip

Half of North Cascades was covered in snow so I still need to go back to see the other half.

Mt. Rainier National Park

6.1.16 – 6.3.16 | fun trip

Ditto comment to North Cascades.

Madison – Devil’s Lake, WI

7.15.16 – 7.16.16 | fun trip

I went to visit Madison on a college tour with my cousin and mom. If you want to feel old, go to your old college town.

Devil’s Lake


Door County, WI

7.22.16 | fun trip

My family goes here every year so it’s hard to find new things to do. However, this year, we jumped off a cliff and went to a really cool barn.

Cave Point County Park

Anderson Barn


Big Sur, Monterey, San Francisco, CA

9.24.16 – 9.28.16 | fun trip

This was my impromptu trip during my week of unemployment. Impromptu trip are the best kind.
