At the beginning of September I traveled to California with my mom and little one to photograph a wedding in Santa Barbara. It was a simply stunning day and you can check it out here if you'd like.
A few days after the wedding we embarked on a road trip from California to Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Wow. We saw so much (we visited 5 national parks + 1 national preserve in 6 days) and I loved seeing how the landscape transitioned as we drove. These are my personal travel photos, so you'll see a mix of landscapes, goofy road side attractions, and my baby bear experiencing the trip.

Santa Barbara, CA
Jack's favorite toys on the trip. He has a John Deere lunch box to carry them in and they went everywhere with us.
The Cabazon Dinosaurs in Cabazon, CA
Entering Joshua Tree NP
I adored Joshua Tree, though we only spent a few hours there. It was such a magical place with beautiful light, few people, and incredible plants and rocks.

Another roadside attraction - Seven Magic Mountains by Swedish artist Ugo Rondinone. It's located in the desert outside Las Vegas and features seven thirty to thirty-five foot tall totems made from locally-sourced boulders. Find more info here.
