Last year for my last birthday, Charly and I spent a week in California exploring Yosemite National Park. I sadly never made a post about it!
This year for Charly’s birthday we went out west again, but this time to Nevada, Arizona, and Utah to visit National Parks out there. The photos in this post were taken by both of us.

I left work early on Friday to head west to Erving State Forest with Julian and Erin.
We had an isolated camp site in the middle of the woods, and spent the weekend hiking and bonfiring (and chopping wood like real men with my new hatchet).
On Sunday we stopped by Historic
Deerfield and the Yankee Candle Store on our way home.

This weekend I joined the MIT Outing Club on a trip to Acadia.
It’s a long drive, but I hiked, climbed cliffs along the seashore, and sea kayaked with seals.
