I remember being in third grade when I was first introduced to California. Everyone got a state to do a project on and the state I was given was good old California, a dream was born in the head of a nine year old. When I was in high school I got obsessed with California again after reading The Electric Koolaid Acid Test, a novel by Tom Wolfe about Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters. When I was a little girl it was the beaches and gorgeous weather, as a teenager the obsession came from the lifestyle. I wanted to grow up to be a hippie who rolled around in a school bus just like the Pranksters did. :) I finally had my first trip to California a couple of years ago and it was everything I imagined and so much more. The laid back vibe, the killer weather, the gorgeous landscape. a dream come true! We had the amazing opportunity to cruise down Highway 1 from San Francisco to Los Angeles, what an adventure. It was truly one of the most amazing and beautiful experiences of my life. Today I am hopping on a plane for another 2 week California adventure. I am taking lots of cameras and lots of film so I will document it well.
Here are a few pictures from my last trip.
