Interstellar Orchard: Balancing blogging and travel

WASHINGTON — When I go to someplace I’ve never been before, lets say a new national park, there are always conflicting thoughts about how to document my experience there. If I take a lot of pictures and video, I’ve captured the moment to share with the internet. But because I’m focusing on how best to share the location with others, I’m not experiencing it as fully myself.
