I. Loved. Colorado.

For the long Labor Day weekend we had, we decided to visit C’s brother while he’s stationed up in Colorado Springs.

C and I always knew we’d like Colorado based on what we’ve seen online and heard from friends, but we didn’t expect to fall in love so hard. We wanted to join the rafters we saw going down the rivers, go fishing on the lakes, jump into the waters, climb all the mountains…

BEAUTIFUL is the only way to describe the place, truly.

In some years when C is done with his this first reserve enlistment with the Navy, we plan on moving out of San Diego (sadly). Colorado is a high contender. If we can convince his older brother to move there too, and his younger brother eventually, it’s a done deal.

I hope we’ll be back again one day.

Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park (Photos!)

With a three day weekend available to us, we decided to spend it at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park.

C and I were both born and raised in Hawaii. I used to think that nothing could beat the views Hawaii had to offer, but I was wrong. The ocean is everything to me but these forests and canyons are something we could get used to.

It still amazes us that we can literally drive four hours and end up in a completely different environment. Five hours from sunny San Diego landed us in forests, canyons, and rivers. Six hours from San Diego¬†and we could end up in Arizona or Nevada, exploring new cities. It’s not a struggle to fly anymore, we just hop in the car and go. No need to save for expensive flights, just money for gas and food along the way.

We love our new lives here outside of Hawaii. Can’t wait for more adventures.
