In March 2017, I experienced the beauty of the west coast for the first time. Born and raised in the Midwest, it was the first time I had witnessed mountains, or seen the pacific ocean. Myself and my brother stayed with our good friend Ben, who was kind enough to lend me three rolls of expired 35mm Fujicolor during our trip. The following imperfect photographs capture a time of wonder and awe I will never forget. Its hard to believe it was a year ago this month that we left.
