There is nothing more exhilarating than digging your bare body in to warm sand. I’ve been wanting to take a road trip to Death Valley for some time. I felt it was always a dream away. But a couple weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have collaborated with my new friend Kent Avery on a concept that made us jump on it and go.

We gathered a fun team and we headed East at 8AM with a car full of snacks, jugs of water, and Taking Back Sunday blaring through the speakers. It felt as if we had all grown up together, screaming those lyrics that took me back to my high school days. I always traveled with my best friend Rachel to new and exciting places. When I first met her 4 years ago, she had just moved to Orange County from Virginia Beach. Rachel once told me she had never been to Las Vegas. Sure enough, months later we packed our giant luggages full of shoe options and one too many outfits and  partied our panties off. This became the first of many trips we would take. She is my ultimate traveling partner. We’ve squatted a potty in a couple different countries together since. Death Valley wouldn’t be any different.

This sunset filled the sky with spectacular colors of blue, pink and orange. I’ve shared many sunsets with Rachel but this was truly one of the most beautiful ones yet. Until our next adventure!
