{California Trip 2013 | Big Sur, Palm Springs, CA Area | Personal}

The beginning of June I got to go visit a friend {Katherine of www.katherinealison.com } in California for a week, and we packed everything possible into that week, including navigating both LA and San Fran traffic, 25+ hours in the car, road tripping up the coast, four days of camping, picture taking, a day at beach, hiking a mountain, the Palm Springs tram way, an afternoon in San Francisco, and topping it off with shooting a wedding the day before I flew out. It was crazy fun! Our travels together are always pretty great, and we end up exhausted but with a lot of good memories and full memory cards ;)
Happy Saturday, ya’ll!
