From Riches to....

Lindsey, how have you been spending your time?

Well, it all started with a trip to Walden Pond. Photo courtesy of Whitney Cutler...who also let me chill with her and her hub for 3 days. HOLLER girl...

Followed by a trip around Boston. From Fenway Park to the Freedom Trail....I decided that I am moving to Boston. Enough said. Some of my faves include:
  • Finding Fenway
  • Touring the Freedom trail with Whitney, making sure we didn't get off the brick path
  • Finding glucose-free meals in the North End
  • Eating pastries...yum
  • Going to church in an old Episcopal church building
  • Meeting friend Nicole for the best hot cocoa I have ever had. It was seriously like drinking Giradelli's straight
  • Eating out with Nicole, Josh and Whitney and having incredible Salmon
  • Walden Pond
  • Touring Isabella Stewart Gardner's was amazing
  • Touring the Modern Arts Museum seeing Monet, Picasso, Rodin, Turner...incredible paintings and sculptures
  • Seeing the places where our forefathers did remarkable things!
  • Loving how accessible things were...the T rules!
  • Studying and getting info at the Harvard Law School library
  • Realizing all of Cambridge comes out for their community festival

After the trip to B-town, I headed straight down south to Havasupai Falls. The trip was short, sweet and pretty much incredible. I can't believe I lived in Arizona for so long without having visited it. Some of the highlights include:

  • Sleeping in the car, having dreams about rolling off the cliff
  • The hike down was beautiful
  • Hiking 10 miles in to camp
  • Seeing the falls for the first time and how blue everything was!
  • Meeting people who lived on the reservation and joking with them about the fact that we were not going to make it out on time before the coyotes ate us for dinner
  • Our campsite was off the main trail and on an island. We had the sweetest campsite in the whole place.
  • Non-smelly restrooms
  • Moody Falls, and the descent!
  • Ivy surroundings
  • Making it to Beaver Falls even though it was bush wacking the whole way
  • Meeting people along the trail and giving them tips
  • Realizing that we forgot our flashlights and we started hiking out at 4:30 p.m. and would be hiking in the dark with no moon
  • Hiking in the dark
  • Hiking out with one flashlight per 4 people...thank you Eric for holding it the whole way
  • Crashing at a hotel in Kingman, thank you to the man who let us go in the hot tub even though it was closed
