Posing at the top of the mountain. Photo by me. (; Woo! Hiking up two miles on an incline was incredibly challenging for me! A couple of months ago, my friends and I hiked up Bear Mountain.

2021: Autumn Storm Chasing on the Beach
A self-portrait of Mahal and I posing on the beach before the storm kicked in. The other day, my mom, our puppy Mahal, and I went to the local beach.

Mahal (by his choice) and I sprinted across the sand … Continue reading 2021: Autumn Storm Chasing on the Beach
