Turns out Orange County is more dangerous than Guatemala...

Andrew by a cathedral in Antigua

Dad was relieved that i came home...

...although he didn't know what to think of Jose, my new boyfriend!

look Mom, i even went to church (in a tank top and a tie-dye skirt!)

passing the travel bible onto Danny-- can you believe 3 Nielsons in Guatemala in less than a month? what are the chances?!

Volcan Pacaya, unfortunately this is the only pic we have from the hike :(

@ Tikal, the famous Mayan ruins

cliff jumping in Lake Atitlan, in case you can't identify me without the head, this is a picture of B; Andrew cut my head off

hi family. i've been all over the place since my lifeguarding job ended about a month ago. i went to arizona to visit scott and shellie (and to see the dodgers vs. d-backs) and to joshua tree national park. i also went to new york/boston/philadelphia/DC for about a week and a half. a bunch of the fam was in vegas two weekends ago to watch my alma mater beat UNLV in football. after vegas, i went to death valley national park and mammoth on my way up to visit the greenmen for a few days. they were kind enough to take me in on only a few hours notice (thanks again kim!). after carson city, i drove over to berkeley, where one of my best friends from high school, analisa, now attends college. i was going to extend the trip a bit but the california wildfires kind of forced me to rearrange my driving plans (what with all the road closures). anyways, there's an abbreviated version of my itinerary, and here are some fun photos! love you all, b

Spivey & B go to Havasupai

Hey everyone, Andrew and I went to Havasupai last week for a few days. You backpack in (about 10 miles), downhill. Then on your way out it's 10 miles uphill so it's a bit of a struggle, especially for my extremely out of shape brother. Regardless, it was super fun and I'm glad I finally got to go see the falls I've heard so much about from Dad, Matt, Danny, and Andrew.

Hoover Dam, on the drive there

Andrew showing how "extreme" he is
The main falls, Havasu

Mooney falls, it's much more narrow and tall
