Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm f4.0 L. From the iconic "Racetrack" in Death Valley National Park. The tracks are left by the rocks that slide across the mud during the rare rainstorms that occur here. The rocks are driven across the mud by wind and gravity. Thanks for looking.

This photo was taken at the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town. We were in Cape Town for our group Spring Break trip. The hike up was strenuous but once at the top the views of Cape Town were definitely worth the hike.
While in the Atacama, our CSBSJU group stopped at a pair of man-made lakes called "Los Ojos" or "The Eyes". These two lakes looked like a pair of eyes and seemed out of place in a barren desert. Nevertheless the setting was incredibly gorgeous with the desert, mountains, and beautiful lakes that showed a complete mirror image of the landscape.

The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don't celebrate those, they can pass you by...

Although programs have set destinations and locations, it doesn't limit the true adventure you can seek. I post traveled and it opened up an incredible world of opportunity.
This is a picture of Malia Carson and myself peeking above the tea troves. The landscape was valleys and valleys of tea troves and we took a stop along the road for fresh pineapple and cashews and took some pictures in the troves.

Quetzaltenango is more commonly known by its Mayan name, Xelaju Noj, which translates to "Under The Seven Peaks" in English. Every morning, Kathryn and I would wake up at 6am and jog to the top of El Baúl--the closest of the seven peaks. Sometimes, we would be joined by our Guatemalan teachers, fellow travelers, and even our families when they visited us. Aside from being incredibly picturesque, El Baúl was important to us and our Mayan friends because high grounds are considered sacred places in Mayan culture. In our last weeks of our study abroad, our morning jogs reached an spiritual culmination. A Mayan "Sacerdote," or priest, took us to the top of El Baúl and allowed us to participate in a traditional Mayan rooster sacrifice ceremony.
