#memoryMonday – sledding down something white but not cold

Almost 3 years ago, my friends and I road-tripped to New Mexico to explore Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains National Park, and White Sands National Monument. As beautiful as the National Parks were, I enjoyed the time at the White Sands best. It was quite spectacular being surrounded by an all white desert. Plus, was the set for the music video of one of my favorite Boyz II Men songs – Water Runs Dry. Too bad my friends weren’t too keen on recreating it. 😀

Kaunolu, Lana’i (2005)

#memoryMonday – Offroading in the quiet little island of Lana’i.

This place was one of King Kamehameha’s fishing spots. On this particular day, I had no luck catching a single fish. But I have yet to replicate the unique experience of being  so remote a place that not a single soul could find you without knowing you were going there. I felt a strange kind of peacefulness, walking on the slippery rocks at the side of the cliffs  and standing at what felt like the edge of the world.
