Dayna, Danny, and I met up for their e-session on the Charles on a beautiful late summer afternoon. (Ok, it was practically early fall and I just don’t want to admit it.) After some initial major gusts of wind on Memorial Drive, we found some cool spots under the bridges to shoot, where the wind was calmer and the backdrops were funky and industrial (my favorite). We had a super fun afternoon of taking in the Boston scenery and the late summer (ok early fall) sun. Can’t wait for their wedding at the Exchange Conference Center in October!
Continuing on the journey. . .
I wonder if the altitude has something to do with how crazy the clouds get.
Loads and loads of hiking.
The Fiery Furnace in Arches National Park. A maze of standstone with no marked trails.
Out of the back window.
Done with driving.
The end! Thanks for looking!
So remember those back-to-school compositions where you had to write about what you did with your summer vacation? Well, this is like that, but with photos instead. This summer Dan and I headed out West for a little bit of wilderness, a lot of nature, and some hanging out with good friends. 1200 miles of driving, some 40+ miles of hiking, and five national parks later, we had a greater appreciation for our country (as well as for what a hot shower really means).
The trusty Lonely Planet.
A view from the dashboard.
A few places to get food.
But most of the time we did camp food (ok, we have to work on the camp food).
Bryce Canyon National Park, where everything looks very other-worldly.
Cairns are rocks that mark a trail; but in this case, many hikers made their own, which made this place feel like a little sanctuary.
This feels pretty tough at 8,000 feet.
The Fairyland Loop at Bryce Canyon, named because everything looks like life-sized sand castles.
I feel like this is a Rorschach test. To me, these look like several Titanics.
Storm on the way.

Stay tuned for Part 2!
The marriage license:
During the wedding, their friend and groomsman played a phenomenal saxophone solo.
Don’t these look fun? The food was by Wolfgang Puck Catering.
A personal favorite of mine: Party Favors in Brookline created the cupcakes.
Hush kept the party going strong!
