San Diego

A very memorable part of the summer was spending our week off for July 4th to visit San Diego. It was the ideal summer paradise – we spent the first day hiking, the second beaching, and the last day zooing. We hiked up Potato Chip Trail, a winding path littered with large boulders that we […]
