More than anything, I have not wanted to blog the past few months. I could attribute it to a few things -- but mainly, blogging just was not as fun as it used to be. Every year, I go through a phase where I look at my blog and wonder what I'm keeping it up for. Am I trying to grow this space and make it into something I need to work at? Or is it really just an online journal?
For now, I'm taking the latter and running with it.
So. Dear Skim. This year, I made the decision to see all of the wildflowers California had to offer. We started out last month by heading up to Death Valley to see the superbloom. It was nothing short of magnificent. Knowing Death Valley, and remembering childhood trips where the entire area was barren and brown (and most importantly boring), it was such a treat to see it bursting with color. Bright yellow flowers flanked the road on either side with sprinkles of purple and pink along the way.
