The more I branch out to explore this world, the more and more I am blown away by its vast beauty. Looking around and being in awe by its intricacies, I am reminded that I have just this one life to drink in all it has to give me. I can either choose to be weighed down by life's hardships, or choose to push onward and find the hope in all things.
This adventure was a weekend spent exploring Death Valley National Park. This park is one you casually hear about. You assume its like any other desert experience you may have encountered before, until you arrive and realize its much more than just sand and rock.
This park provides a variety of mind boggling exploration. Our first hike was one looking for a hidden oasis; the last thing you would expect to find in a place called Death Valley! Moving on, we found ourselves exploring canyons that provided a variety of geological finds, and then ended with the vast salt fields that the valley is known for.
It ended up being a great weekend spent away from the city, experiencing something knew, and enjoying an unlikely park for the first time!
