Erin & Wes Go West – Days 5, 6, & 7.

Day 5. We spent the entire fifth day of our trip exploring around LA. It was one of the only days of our trip where we didn’t have to be anywhere in particular, but we did map out all the things we were interested in doing.

We spent hours walking through each room and checking out everything they had to offer. I was …

Erin & Wes Go West – Day 4.

We left Phoenix very early on the fourth day of our trip in order to make it to Los Angeles at a reasonable hour. We stopped for lunch at a place called Rebel BBQ in Blythe, California, right across the state line. Surprisingly it was some of the best food we had on the whole trip. Damn good barbeque! From there we turned off the main road for a little visit to the Imperial Sand Dunes. I had stumbled upon them on accident around sunset the last time I was out west and it was one of the most beautiful …

Erin & Wes Go West – Day 3.

On the third day of our trip, we woke up early and headed north to visit the Grand Canyon. We stopped at a sunflower field just outside Flagstaff for some photos, because we always seem to miss photographing the sunflowers in Texas. It was Erin’s first time visiting the Grand Canyon, so I insisted we go watch the IMAX movie about the Grand Canyon before she saw it for herself. It definitely does a good job of getting you amped up to see and appreciate the magnitude of the place. I told Erin to close her eyes once we got …

Even though we are rushing to get to the West Coast, we can't not stop to take photos with these beautiful desert landscapes. #erinandwesgowest .

I had been once before, and even though it was very touristy there was some pretty neat stuff to see. My favorite part of Tombstone was that there was a shooting gallery where you could shoot fake bullets out …

Erin & Wes Go West – Day 1.

A vacation for Erin & I had been long overdue. We had never gone on a vacation together (even after dating for 2 1/2 years), and I hadn’t been on a vacation in over 4 years. We had been talking about going on a road trip to California for as long as we could remember, but with Erin’s job and internship, it was almost impossible to find the right time to go. That’s when we realized she would have exactly 10 days between when her internship at Red Productions ended and when a new semester started. So we had to …
