summer getaways – road trip!

lou is our tomboy all american girl who loves the great outdoors – so there is no better summer getaway for her than a cross country road trip.  she is inspired by being on the road and the vast American landscape that sprawls out before her.  from lush green forest to open plains to desolate ghost towns and sand dunes she drives with the windows down and the music blasting, the wind whipping her hair across her face.  she has a bad habit of stopping at western gas stations and rest stops where they sell cowboy hats, dream catchers and native american woven blankets that she picks up as souvenirs. the white topped mountains in the distance take her breath away.


lou doesn’t reach her destination until she can’t go any further – she has reached the pacific coast, and drives up highway one to big sur, one of the most beautiful spots in the US.  Here she hikes to a campground to meet up with others and share stories of the road. she swims in the river and takes hikes down to the beach, coming back in time to cook a campfire dinner and go to sleep, exhausted from the day’s activities, under a canopy of redwood trees.

  1. hello, i wanted to make a suggestion for a entry for the freepeopleblog. i have been learning how to make ukranian eggs, and the art process, meaning behind it, and most importantly the designs are just beautiful. if you’ve never blogged about it before, just type in ukranian eggs or pysanky on google images and i promise you’ll be impressed with the details in some of them


  2. A lot of these images ended up on my roadtrip inspiration board! Thanks for keeping the creative fuel coming! I hope we end up with shots that are just as fun. Our trip log/photo collection is being updated from the road.
