We’ve been in California far longer than I expected, over 2 months now, and although I was wary at first, I’m now a pretty big fan of this giant state.
The nature around here is unmistakably unique to California. In the Sierra Nevada Mountains there are trees as big and tall as two semi trucks parked end to end (or bigger), and in the spring, low lying clouds and foggy scenery. I can’t help but be excited about it every time we go exploring. I would choose a rainy day in northern California to a sunny day on the beach any day.
After we visited Yosemite and Big Trees State Park in the Sierras, we traveled to the coast where we saw the redwood forests, hung out on rocky beaches and strolled ferny paths. These forests are magical, and flora so thick and ancient.
Here are some of my favorite shots from these places.
We’re in Phoenix, Arizona and although it’s early in the year still, it’s hot… like 98 degrees hot The air conditioner won’t turn off and it’s hard to want to do anything during the day – so I’ll just stay inside for now and pick out some of my favorite art pieces.
Joshua Tree and Moon by Kat
Staying in the theme of “heat” and/or “desert” I chose these pieces. Each one with a different feel about the desert, the colors mostly stay southwestern but the sentiment is real. The desert is beautiful and mysterious, harsh and alien. I love it!

I don’t know if we’ll ever make to all 7 seas, but we don’t intend to stop traveling anytime soon. This treasury by Innovation JewelryfromInnovationJ sets a great mood for all kinds of travel ,by air, sea or auto!
Last weekend was the Montford Music Festival, and although we couldn’t be there, some of my photos made it! The Moonlight Makers‘ bus is finally finished and on the road, hitting up its second art festival of the year.
