Welcome to my gallery and blog. Please join me on my journey to visit state parks and document my experiences with nature photos. My site shows my love nature, hiking, camping, and photography. I find solace behind the lens of my camera, and I use hikes as a way to decompress from the hustle of everyday life. I document my travel in my blog, Notes from a Novice, with hope that it will inspire other's to explore nature and photography. Thank you for visiting my site.
