Five years ago a friend and I drove out west for a couple of weeks exploring Santa Fe and the surrounding areas, and I remember feeling so excited and accomplished because it was the furthest I'd ever driven. Like more than one day of driving to get somewhere. And here I am casually packing up to run off to California, again, crossing the country by myself in 2.5 days, again, like it's no big deal. This was the trip that started all the many adventures out west. Palm Springs, I will see you soon. PS if you have the opportunity to go hot air ballooning in Taos, do it. It is magical. #artistlife#LQAF#taos#lifeontheroad#inspiration#adventure#hotairballoon#prettythings
Rode out the worst of the cold snap in the Escalante Petrified Forest State Park. Escalante, UT.
$25/night for an electric + water campsite, or $17/night for dry camping in the winter. Dump station at park entrance. Shower rooms closed for winter. Sites are pretty small. Good camp hosts. 4 bars VZ 3G unboosted.
The Trail of Sleeping Rainbows has the best of the petrified wood examples in the region, and the cottonwood tree-lined Wide Hollow Reservoir is rated a top 25 bird watching spot in America. 🦅

Yesterday, Shannon drove ahead and I stayed behind to get a tattoo. It had been awhile since I had felt really inspired (or motivated) to get anything new. But I loved the desert and saguaro so much, I had to take a piece of it with me. Thanks so much to @istaritattoostudio and @jim_quinn_ii for the fantastic atmosphere and the beautiful piece of art. I love this so much. 🌵❤️
