If you ever get a chance to drive an easy 6 hours to be surrounded by tons of lakes and towering trees be sure to check out Saddlebag Lakes to rent a boat and find yourself at the beginning of even more lakes! Quite possibly one of my favorite hikes in Mammoth, as you climb in relatively easy elevation, you see snow topped mountains in the middle of summer and epic meadows for picnicking.
In the 9 years I've been annually visiting, I'd never once seen a Tufa. Lake Mono was one geological butte, that I was instantly fascinated by (photos near the bottom). Even more fascinating? The signs not photographed, reading "No climbing the Tufas".
Besides the perfect dinner spreads and endless amounts of fancy craft beer and wine, this girl caught her first fish ever! I might have screamed with excitement and I can't believe how delicious it tasted. We now will be holding annual boat races at Deadmans Creek, which resulted in an afternoon of serious fun. I swooned to to moon on how relaxing camping and the great outdoors can be for an entire week!
There's something so special about exploring this world and it's natural beauty. With photography, it really gets you to stop and capture a picture so you can remember this moment forever.
Have a terrific week my darlings!

Our world is kinda beautiful and thanks to astronaut Don Petit with his creative camera skills in the International Space Station, we get to swoon over these butes! He took 30-second exposures capturing a 10-15 minute lapse of Auroras, Thunderstorms, and star trails. More photos can be found here.
Hope you are all having a marvelous beginning to your week!

For you I swoon
Into the sky that never seems to end
Stretched from here to the moon
Reflect stars strung effortlessly
darling float with me
Drifting in and out
Daybreak will shed light
Illusions real and untrue
Breathe into me
Seconds will become minutes
Those minutes will become days
Together as one entity
Through turbulent seas and sunshine
You and Me
Listen to this:

This summer is going to consist of
Surfing Sanos on the regular.
Serious explorations with this bute.
Picnicking as per usual.
Getting cozy in Big Sur.
Whipping up a delicious spinach smoothie everyday.
Learning how to paddle board.
Caprese Salads on hot days.
A wine tasting adventure or two.
Polishing the summer off with this festival!
It's going to be a great one, especially with this huge ocean to play in.
