Acadia

I spent last week in the encapsulating beauty of Acadia, the fall version. It was the exact same week I traveled to Acadia last year, and the whole time I was there my mind kept rifling through everything that’s happened…

Some Travel Photos

With all the extra time on my hands lately, I’ve gotten around to a few things I’ve been meaning to do. A big one was consolidating and organizing all the photos I’ve taken over the past decade in all the…

Day 51
