When many people think of Florida, they imagine sandy shorelines or beautiful springs. While Florida certainly boasts a wide selection of beaches and fresh water springs, the state also is host to some beautiful rapids at Hillsborough River State Park. These rapids might not be huge, but they sure are beautiful. Oh, and Florida’s rapids have a unique twist to them – they are surrounded by alligators.

Of all the memories I have from my time in Iceland, some of my favorites include moments spent in amazing restaurants in Reykjavík. We’d set off for our daily journey by walking throughout the city in the late morning light (or at times, morning darkness) and stumble into warm eateries that we had heard were worth the visit. *Updated* Since I first wrote this post, I’ve been back to Iceland multiple times. I’ve now edited this post to include photos and experiences from multiple trips to Reykjavík.
You know when you eat, and eat, and eat when you aren’t even hungry because the food is THAT good? Yeah, that’s my experience with a number of the La Jolla restaurants we went to during our last trip to California. Seriously, the food was incredible.

So, I downloaded the app, created an account, and began my search.

For my birthday in late July I decided to visit some of the beautiful praries we have in Florida. We started our first hike fairly early in the morning. We hadn’t walked for long when we came across this beautiful deer eating breakfast. She didn’t mind in the least that we were walking down the trail. It was a great wildlife encounter and a great start to my birthday adventure!
This photo was taken on our fist day in Wyoming. We had unpacked at the hotel and decided to drive around to get the lay of the land. I could see something off in the distance and was certain it was some type of ungulate, but I couldn’t make out exactly what it was.
