I wrap up my visit in California with 2 more National Parks and a visit to the Eastern Sierras/ Mammoth. I venture beyond barriers and find solitude among mountains, almost die, and find serenity under the milky way grounded in a hot spring. Oh! and I get inspired for my 3rd tattoo (which I get later in TX).
This is my second time to CA and my focus is on NorCal. I return in 2019 and focus on the South.

I share a letter I wrote to my senate and representatives and share an easy way where you can do the same- custom message or not. I also share why demanding changes and finding support is important for the future- for children, the generation who’ll truly be affected and can’t vote.
