Blue Pool – Oregon

Though I’m writing here at the end of the second week of school, I’m looking back at the end of the first week. I was able to go on a short hike to Blue Pool. The photo opportunities were plentiful and I experimented with my camera and Photoshop.


The hike was a really nice wind down from the first week of classes. My classes are great so far and my schedule is a lot less stressful than this past term. I’m looking forward to learning more this term and developing my PR communication skills.

Stay tuned for more about my classes, my life and practically anything else I want to blog about. As always I’m open to suggestions for posts, so comment below!

Summer Hikes – Devil’s Thumb

I took a solo journey up to Devil’s Thumb on July 6th. It was amazing but challenging four-hour hike where I was able to take some wonderful pictures. Living in the Rocky Mountains is a blessing and every chance I get I like to hike and take in the beauty around me in Grand County.

Here are some of the photos I was able to take. The wildflowers were in full bloom and scattered down the trail. Plus the view from the top was pretty cool.
