the karavan
Dear Friends and Family,
I graduated from the University of Washington in 2012, and have since been traveling, kiteboarding, skiing and exploring.
I hope that my words and photos inspire you to take your own adventures!

Venturing through the spectacular, unbelievable Zion National Park allowed me to walk along razor sharp edges such as this one. The sporadic rain squalls enhanced the colors of the sandstone layers, as the shadows of the clouds danced along the cliffs. Wish I could live here.
