I left California October of 2008 and headed to the Great State of Utah. I did not have any plans ; I just hopped on the the train and headed east. I have always wanted to see different places but I did not have the means to travel. Besides that, I was always tied up to my job. It was one day, I decided, I would just travel and see places. A few months after leaving California, I found out a job at one of the National Parks in Utah. It was very convenient living this new lifestyle as I did not have much. All I had with me were the basic necessities. It was almost like I was born to live this transitory lifestyle. I was like a full-time camper. But not exactly camping out, as most jobs in the wilderness provide decent housing. I get to move from one park to another as soon as the season ends. And that was the fun part. From end on, I started traveling to different places, meeting new people, and just living a life that is incredibly liberating. I have been to so many different places and have seen so many stunningly majestic geographical landmarks, from the Rockies, the Colorado Plateau, the Black Hills of South Dakota, the Cascades, all the way to the Last Frontier, the Great State of Alaska. I intent to continue traveling and enjoy the beauty of our landscape. The journey never ends. Let's discover our own trails.
