Walt & Mickey Survey Carthay Circle

Walt & Mickey Survey Carthay Circle

Here’s another shot from my first night at Disney California Adventure. They weren’t quite done putting up the seasonal purple lights yet so it’s kind of a unique shot. Unfortunately, this was also the night security was pushing very hard so it’s one of very...

A Distant Gleaming

A Distant Gleaming

I have another shot today from my brief stay in Joshua Tree National Park. This shot was taken just on the opposite side of Arch Rock. I would have loved to have another night here as I feel like there’s so many cool rock formations...

The Back Side of Castle

The Back Side of Castle

Mr. Toad Off the Rails

Mr. Toad Off the Rails

Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride is the ride I most anticipated riding during my visit to Disneyland. While that may seem odd I have many memories of riding it as a young kid. It did not disappoint. I LOVE the old school dark rides and the...

Yosemite Glacier Point Sunset

Yosemite Glacier Point Sunset

Let’s get right down to it. Yosemite is the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen in my life. Its scale and grandeur cannot be captured in a photo. I’ve viewed thousands of photos of it prior to my visit and none of that prepared me...
