End of last year was pretty crazy and stressful so after my defense, Drew and I went on a little getaway. We spent a couple of nights in Palm Springs where we hung out at the street fair, had an awesome brunch at Cheeky’s, and took a hike to a desert waterfall. Then on our way to San Diego for Christmas, we went by the Salton sea, checked out the International Banana Museum (Guinness World Book of Records for most banana related stuff in one place!), and marveled at Salvation Mountain before grabbing some world famous Dudley’s bread (date nut flavor is my favorite). It was a great trip, the perfect way to relax and have a little adventure at the same time.

I just recently realized that I never got around to putting up these pictures. Yellowstone is such an amazing place, filled with natural wonders. The thermal springs and geysers were my favorite part of the park. We also got a few glimpses of bears, bison, and elk. I’m so excited for 2013, big changes are going to happen this year, but for now enjoy a quick look at a highlight of 2012.

In the doldrums of winter, let’s take a look back at a glorious moment of summer. Drew and I had the most amazing experience rafting the middle fork of the American River. It was just the right amount of excitement for a newbie like me with a few faster rapids mixed in with more easy, slow ones. If you go, I cannot recommend Tributary Tours enough. These guys are the best. They let us jump off some rocks (drew did it, but I was too scared :p), showed us where the wild blackberries were, and where to swim the rapids if we wanted to. I was a perfect summer getaway :)

For Thanksgiving this year, Drew and I along with his family went up to Yosemite. I had never been before. It is gorgeous. I don’t think these pictures do it justice at all. I was so happy to see the waterfalls were still running, even if at just a trickle. We will definitely be back to explore more :)
