Continuing from my previous post 365 project post, last weekend I attended a wedding reception for my dad and stopmom. My three brothers and I were all together for the first time in a few years, and there was lots of delicious food (see the pies?). On Monday, I began a roadtrip out to southern California where I’ll be spending the rest of my summer as an intern at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL). I stopped a few interesting places on my way, including the Grand Canyon!

On my way to California, I stayed at an Airbnb in Tulsa, OK, near the Arkansas River. After a long day of driving, I ate some Chinese takeout and watched the sun set.

Texas makes sure you always know what state you’re in… This is one of several large star-shaped holes in a rest stop building.

Whenver I’m in a place with very little light pollution, I like to try to capture some astrophotos!
