    Written on February 18, 2015 at 2:28 pm, by

    Back in October, the Tamarind Adventure Club enjoyed a night of camping at White Sands National Monument. When we arrived in the early afternoon, the sun was high overhead and the heat, reflecting of the dunes, was almost unbearable. The sand however, made out of gypsum, remained cool to the touch, collecting what little moisture the Continue Reading »

    For Memorial Day, the Tamarind Adventure Club went swimming at Lake Abiquiu, near Ghost Ranch. The lake is man made, and is one of the few lakes in New Mexico that allows motorized boating. The weather was gorgeous, the lake was calm, and the water was the perfect temperature.

    Back in August, before classes started, I drove down the Salt Missions Trail Scenic Byway through the middle of New Mexico. After six months of traversing the state, this route remains my favorite, and in my opinion, the most beautiful by far.  The Salt Missions Trail leads to the Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument, a Continue Reading »

    Back in February, I went on a multi-day Oregon Adventure with awesome friends Jenna, Erin and Liliana. Our original destination was a popular hot spring but the highlight of the trip was an impromptu visit to Crater Lake. We luckily visited during a gorgeous window of clear weather; the next day, the park was inaccessible for Continue Reading »

We stayed the night in Forks, and the following day we went for a hike in the Hoh Rainforest. These are quite possibly some of the most magical areas Continue Reading »
