Best of january 2018

Last month I did my annual road trip from Denver to Quartzsite, Arizona. This trip is always my favorite time of year, and usually I document my trip but this year I wanted to enjoy the gems show and family time with no lens.  I didn't even bring my canon with me. Of course I had my phone and did snap a few photos here and there. My parents have an RV so I hopped in with them when I landed in Quartzsite. I stayed with them for a few nights. It's always nice to get this quality time in with them because now we live so far, I don't get to see them as often as I wished. And now I have my dad to thank for getting me addicted to Mr. Robot. Has anyone seen this show? I literally watched a whole season in the three nights I was there. It's on amazon prime if anyone is interested:) 

On the way back from Quartzsite I found out my adventure sister Jess (i've collabed and adventured with her lots in past blogs here and here and she's done lots of my photography for the site) was traveling through Arizona in her RV as well. So I hopped in a couple nights with her and her husband down in Phoenix before heading back to Colorado. We did some awesome thrifting and shopping in Scottsdale at places I'd never been and decided to get fancy for cocktails at the W after I ended up scoring this beautiful beaded vintage dress. Always the best adventures with @explores_outdoors. We did document a little from our adventure at the Salt River when we ran in to the wild horses (photo diary up next). Here's five of my favorites captured on my iphone last month.
