Ever seen the Northwestern US? I have.

I'm mostly updating my blog because Jessie made me feel guilty, and this is my first update with pictures! So it's basically a miracle. These are some pictures from the roadtrip, from when I finally started taking pictures. This first photo is from Kerbyville, Oregon, which is one of my favorite places ever! They had a treehouse store and a pick-your-own-flowers field, so we got a bouquet for SUPER cheap. It was great.
Then we went to the Oregon Caves but I didn't get any incredible pictures there, so let's skip to the redwood forests. This picture may be ultra cheesy, but that's how happy I was to be there! We love nature.
Later that day we made it to Crescent City. We were going to watch the sunset, but then it was SUPER foggy so we couldn't see it. But this is the greatest place. I love the ocean and lighthouses and fog. Beautiful.
Then we went to San Francisco, and one night after eating at the delicious House of Nanking, while walking back to our hotel we found this incredible bookstore-- City Lights Books. It was an independent bookstore with all these different rooms and "Poetry Upstairs" and quotes everywhere and I loved it. San Francisco is one of my favorite cities.
THEN I went to Denver for Amy's wedding, which was great. We were staying in Estes Park, where the reception was, and it was another beautiful mountain-forest and Amy looked great and I made a toast and mentioned Hungry Hungry Hippos. It was the end of BANK, but it was a good end.

So, this trip was great. Now I'm back in Provo, I spent all day Monday moving [big thanks to Jessie and Dillon and Mark for helping me, it would have been a nightmare alone] and I started running again and I'm trying to enjoy the last week and a half of summer. But fall is going to be great, I've got a feeling. Maybe I'll upload some more pictures from the summer later. We'll see.
