Energized

Hey friends! I’m glad many of you enjoyed my 10 year blogging anniversary trip down memory lane/Q&A blog post!

Funny story: the above photo was taken by a young Asian tourist who spoke very little English and was extremely confused by what we were trying to do. Luckily he eventually nailed it and all of us were really excited. ;) 

Anyway – we started early in hopes of catching an awesome sunrise, but it was mostly cloudy… oh well! Still beautiful.
