Personally, I’ve always been a huge fan of science fiction movies!  So one random Monday, I decided that I needed to get out of the LA area, and visit one of the movie industry’s iconic filming locations, Vasquez Rocks!  I squealed internally as I drove up towards the large, diagonal rocks!  My favorite films and tv shows that were shot here are:  Austin Powers, John Carter, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek, and MacGyver!  And, Vasquez Rocks was drawn as a landscape in one of my all time FAVORITE tv shows, Futurama!

I did a quick walkabout, and I tried to get some cool shots of my jewelry with the rocks in the background!  What’s also amazing about this place is that you can bring a book and read, relax and meditate, or hike up the rocks!  Which of COURSE I had to climb up the rocks–it’s a short but steep hike, and a little narrow and tricky in certain spots, but I made it up there!  (Sans water, like a crazy person–I mean, what was I thinking?)  As I was making my way up, there was a guy blasting music from his car, so I hiked up there listening to the soft sounds of Otis Redding and Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.

It was definitely inspiring to be around such unique and looming rock formations, I mostly just stood awestruck in the midst of it all!  Hope you guys get the chance to visit such a magical and incredible place!
