New Year: New Road Trip

This past new years my friend Jared and I decided to do things a little differently, we set out on a five-day road trip from Salt Lake City, UT to Big Sur, CA. Along the way Jared had to shoot a video for this clothing company, SLVDR, so we made frequent stops at anything that looked remotely interesting. Which was perfect for me because while he was doing his thing, I wandered off with my camera glued to my eyeball. Making only one overnight stop in San Francisco, we spent the rest of the nights in a cabin at Big Sur. Besides coming down with food poisoning on New Years Eve, which put us both down for the count that night… it was a pretty amazing trip, Big Sur had been on my list of places to go for quite a while.

Check out my photos and Jared’s video after the jump… they will tell the rest of the story.

Along the way I shot a series of photos of my feet in all the different landscapes we passed through… this is the result.

Sketchy living situation in the middle of nowhere.

Hard to top this place though.

And their matching “guest house”.

And shooting it…

Big ol’ tree we found on a hike. I can only imagine the size of the spiders crawling around in there.

I have a feeling you didn’t realize that is just a tripod he is holding when you first looked at this photo.

Nice to relax in front of a fire after a day of hiking around.

As good as this looks… this may or may not have given me food poisoning.

As horrible as I look… this probably didn’t give me food poisoning.

As much as it sucked having to cross through this cold, still, body of water to get the beach… it made for a nice photo.

And the other you saw this.

I wish I had taken more photos of the trip from Big Sur back down to Los Angeles… but I still felt pretty horrible from the food poisoning the night before. It is an incredible drive along the coast though. I highly recommend it.

Above is the video Jared shot along the way for SLVDR. You might recognize most of the locations from my photos. Stay tuned for a whole separate post on this clothing brand… they make some pretty nice stuff.
