I am super excited to get right into the New Year. As you read this, I am already on my first adventure of 2016. I am typing this post on my phone from the passenger side of the car heading to California!


The boyfriend and I (his name is Ben), rang in the New Year at Mt. Princeton Hot Springs Resort near Buena Vista, CO. The party included a dip in the springs and my friend’s swing band was playing. We danced, ate, and counted down til the new year was here!


Currently we are in Utah, about two hours from Vegas. The plan is to camp in Death Valley tonight, finish the drive to Lone Pine, CA and we are climbing the mointaineer’s route on Mt. Whitney. (insert your sexual puns here. In case you didnt know, my name is Whitney.)


Then, after a day’s rest from the crazy, winter hike we will be heading South to San Diego for some zoo and beach time to finish with climbing in Joshua Tree. On the way home, we plan on seeing the Hoover Dam!

I can’t wait to share my adventures with you all when I get back! I have a lot to look forward to in 2016!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from Racing the States!
