Spending time outdoors and seeing the beauty of nature is my way of fueling my passion for life. Taking photos is my way of sharing the inspiration with the rest of the world.

Did a day hike here, and it was absolutely magical! It wasn't crowded at all, compared to the Mesquite Sand Dunes inside Death Valley. We had it all to ourselves. Well-worth the 8 mile rt hike!

We saw deers while we were out there! Didn't get to swim last time, so we'd probably have to head back there again soon. :)

The hike is easy, not crowded, and Cassidy Arch looks incredible! Be careful of passing thunderstorms, they warned us of lightning strikes while we're out there.

Mt. Baldy is one of the most challenging hikes i've ever done, and my first ever peak out of the 6 pack of peaks in the Los Angeles area. I highly recommend doing this hike early, so you'll have plenty of time to rest in between. Be careful when doing this hike during winter, since there have been deaths caused by slipping on the icy trail.

Antelope Canyon is truly magical. I believe a tour is now required to be able to go, and that means you will be with a whole bunch of people. The experience of the tour was not the best for me, since there were so many people always getting in your shot, plus long lines inside the canyon.. But the canyon itself was BEAUTIFUL.

Short and sweet canyon hike! I enjoyed this a lot because of the shade it gave, since we hiked mid-day. I recommend doing it early in the morning or late in the afternoon, especially if temps in Death Valley are high. Plus you are also able to get a great shot of the natural arch with less people if you go early ;)

It was nice to hike through Redwood Trees in this trail, but the amount of water in Pfeiffer Falls was kind of disappointing. When the rangers said "60foot waterfall" we thought it would be much more impressive. The extra half mile towards Valley view made up for it though! I loved the view from up there!

I love this hike, and i love that there are two routes..one short and easy, the other long. So it's perfect for a full day, or a couple of hours, whichever works best for you :) The view at the top is AMAZING! 360 views of mountain ranges and the pacific ocean. I highly recommend!

I love how close this is to where I live! One of my favorite camping spots in LA, which offers scenic mountain views! Perfect for a relaxing weekend.

The hike (or walk) to lower falls is easy, just be careful with climbing over rocks as it can be slippery. Because of the accessible location, expect a lot of people here especially on peak days (holidays, weekends). I suggest going early in the day as your first itinerary, then hike to the upper falls afterwards.

Prepare for the exhausting switchbacks to the top, and the steep cliffs. Probably my scariest hike to date! I highly recommend shoes with good traction. If only I had worn good shoes, I think I would feel less afraid.

This place is so easy to get to, and the place is huge! I love how the water is so blue, and the canyon is orange. Such a perfect contrast! And it's a great place to view the sunset too, because it sets directly in front of you.

This place is out of this world! I can't believe it was created by nature, itself. For the permits, I suggest trying the walk-in lottery during the first few weeks of December. During this off-season month, they only do lotteries in the weekdays, so if you go on a Friday to apply, you get drawn for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Chances are definitely higher, and there are a lot less people too.

I think this is the first time i've actually seen a line to get a picture taken in all of the hikes i've done in my life. Lol! But it sure is a great place to take the perfect "adventurous photo"! I suggest going here really early to beat the lines, and exploring other places once you've reached the top. There are lots of boulders to climb, and scenic views to take in.

I love how accessible this place is. I would love to come back and lay a blanket, have a picnic, and just enjoy the sunset.

Make time to do this trail, even after a full day of hiking the longer trails in Zion. The views here are so worth it, and the trail is easy and quick. Great to view the sunset as well!

When someone asks me what the best place is to view the sunset here in the valley, I always tell them El Matador State Beach. Great for taking sunset photographs, plus the rock formations in this beach completes the picture! Place can get too crowded so visit either very early or you can also stay til after the sun has set (nice place to go stargazing, too!)

You cannot go to Death Valley without checking out Badwater Basin! This place looks so unreal. But be sure to check this out in the early morning since temps are really high in this place.

I love the Cave of Munits! And I love how close this is to home. A must-do for every adventurer and explorer out there. After reaching the cave, you can keep going up to Castle Peak, which offers great 360 views of the valley. Be sure to use shoes with good traction!

The super bloom was amaaaazing! I am so happy and grateful to have experienced it myself. I cannot believe that a place so hot and so dry can also be a place for a beautiful flower field! When you go, be sure to check online for where the flowers are now blooming, because I believe they're starting to move up to higher elevations.

When you visit the Mesquite Sand Dunes in Death Valley, it will be hard to believe that you're still in California. The views here look amazing, especially during sunset. Be prepared for an intense leg workout! Climbing up the dunes was very hard and tiring. But the view was definitely worth it. Bring a mat so you can lay on the sand. After sunset you would want to wait for the night sky to view the stars.
