    Hiking the Huangdidian Trail!

    Every time I go hiking, I try to find a trail that’s interesting and fun to climb. I’m not a big fan of just straight stairs up and down because for one, I hate stairs but also that gets boring pretty quickly. The trail I’ll be talking about today was no different.

    Hiking a Waterfall at Yosemite National Park

    My family has been going to Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks ever since I was young because they were close, and nature is just so majestic and beautiful. It's my first time coming to Yosemite in May. Usually we come towards the end of summer, and most of the water is dried up and there is little to no water left in the waterfalls.

    Badouzi Coast Park

    Last weekend, I went on another adventure to go exploring in northern Taiwan. My friend and I walked along the coast in the Badouzi 八斗子 Coast Park. During this trip, I didn’t take as many photos as I usually do. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to create memories so we can look back at them, we forget to just enjoy the moment.
