Roadtrips for me and my family have become a sort of tradition of our summer. Something about traveling through the parts of this country that are unseen by most of the population is so fascinating to me. The miles and miles of land stretching between each major city just makes me awestruck at how large and vast our world is. Sometimes I get so caught up in my own little corner of my life and I forget the big picture of how honestly huge our world is. I need to get this perspective every once and a while to remind myself of how petty my little problems are compared to the world. Going on this trip through the vast state of California and beyond gave me this perspective. It really helped me and encouraged me to face my problems with confidence in the realization of how small they are. Below are some pictures of the two days my family and I spent in San Fransisco. Even in the hustle and bustle of the city, it made me feel encouraged to return home with a hope and relief that everything is for a reason.
