- Never seen so many hot people my whole life *dayum Los Angeles*
- Seeing the highest amount of trees my whole life within a single day in Kellogg, Idaho... it's almost on the boarder of Washington State, it was like an unknown heaven in America, basically a huge green valley with white-tipped Skiing resorts on top of the surrounding mountains, bluest sky I've ever seen it was June.
