I miss that feeling when the late-afternoon sunlight is flooding the desert and you’ve just flown past a sign warning, “last gas for 100 miles” with a quarter of a tank left, and you’re with your sister and you’re singing along to that band that changed your life in high school, and you know you’ll never catch up to the horizon, try as you might.¬†

That’s the type of moment I live for.

Lombard Street, “the crookedest street in the world.”
It has 8 switchbacks in one block! I was very happy to not be driving down it.

The view from Coit Tower. San Francisco is so pretty! And I’m pretty sure the Golden Gate Bridge is always shrouded in fog.
