40° West / Finding Home

I never imagined I would live here. Places like this are too beautiful and too foreign to be home. The first time I passed through was 2005, I remember marveling at the towering redwoods and standing atop a high bluff staring out across the tops of clouds where I had expected to see nothing but the Pacific ocean. 
In 2014 I came again to visit a friend, nearly 4 years later I'm still exploring what it means to call this home.
