Opt Outside

For black Friday we decided to join REI and Opt Outside instead of shop. REI is one of our favorite companies, and  a couple of years ago they started to close all of their stores so their employees could enjoy time with their families and enjoy the outdoors instead of work. REI invites everybody else to "opt out" with them, and this year over 6 million people did! In a world where advertising and marketing are literally everywhere, it's nice to take a break and be in the moment.

We hiked Desert Queen Mine in Joshua Tree National Park. It's one of my favorite short hikes that we've done so far because there are so many different rock formations as you climb down one canyon and up another. It was only 2.8 miles and we planned it do we drove home during sunset. I will never get over how beautiful the sunsets are in the desert. It's magical, and if you haven't seen it in person you should put it on your bucket list.
