abandoned in the desert 2018

by Kaylah Stroup

These are the very last photos from our wedding trip. I’m so sad to have finally gotten through them all. I mean, I know it was all the way back in the beginning of June but I liked knowing that I still had photos left to sort through. After each trip to the desert, I end up having an assortment of photos from the abandoned places we stopped at along the way. Each year I save all these random photos until last and end up writing a post about how much I enjoy desert abandonment, how much these trips mean to me, etc. Perhaps it’s a bit redundant but y’all, I like to talk about it. (2014, 2015, 2016 + 2017

Obviously, this year’s post is a little more special than normal. Not only did we get married on this trip but my parents were there with us at all of these places. After officially deciding that we’d get married in Arizona, one of the things I was most excited about was getting my parents back out west. My mom loves the scenery and my dad loves poking around all the abandoned houses. Roadtripping around with four people was definitely more difficult than it just being the two of us but I feel so thankful that we had the opportunity to experience this with them. I don’t feel like crying, it’s too early for that, so I’ll just say holy cow, I love my family.
