Portland –> Tahoe –> Coachella

After spending a year and a half in Revelstoke, BC Canada I was sad to say goodbye to all the amazing people and places that had filled that time. Although at the same time I was excited about the next month of adventure which would take me down the west coast of the United States, inland to Tahoe and down to the Music festival Coachella. ( and later to Mexico and home.. photos to come )

The following photos are some random images I captured during the trip and include photos from Portland, Oregon, the coast of California and sights from Coachella. Wez and I were lucky enough to be hooked up by a friend and Portland local – Colleen, who organized for us to crash with her friend Katherine. She was nice enough to let two strange Kiwis into her apartment and show us around Portland even though she had never met us. Portland is a sweet city!

From there it was on to Tahoe to hang out with old college friends and attend a college party. Thanks Kieth for the place to stay. After Tahoe we checked out San Fran, crashed in the van in AAArons driveway, picked up Troy in LA, rode some roller coasters and headed to Coachella to meet up with the Revychella crew who had come down from Revelstoke. Good times.
