Summer Travels Photo Series

By: Annie Lalonde

This summer, I used nature as my escape from quarantine. The pictures below are vastly different in edits and places, but each was taken in a moment of gratitude and awe. While interning in Washington D.C., I was granted the opportunity to travel along the East Coast. This was full of beaches, national parks and boat trips. I was amazed how many hidden treasures I could escape to while still being cautious and safe during the pandemic. Even though I couldn’t spend my time with all the people I wanted to, I used my nature adventures as a route to keeping summer feeling normal. In addition to the East Coast, I had the opportunity to visit my family’s lakehouse in Glen Arbor, Michigan. Glen Arbor has plenty of nature trails, dunes, ideal sunset views and stargazing points.
