I took a trip to Seattle to visit a few friends then drove north to Diablo Lake. The water turns a bright turquoise when sunlight hits it.

I took a trip to the Hudson Valley last week and fell in love with all the towns and the beautiful Catskill mountains. I grew up not too far from this area but for some reason never really explored the towns. Although it was raining the whole time we did get a chance to do a small hike around the lake in Minnewaska.
One of the first places we stopped at was Dia:Beacon and let me tell you, it was truly breathtaking. The building itself used to be a Nabisco factory and has the most gorgeous natural light seeping in. Not to mention the art… Sol LeWitt’s collection was my favorite but everything was so well curated. And you can really get up close to the art; nothing is roped off, which really changes the experience. Definitely need to take another trip back there.
