I am often frustrated that I am living in the middle of a massive city, and though I am proud to call UCLA my home, I find myself dreaming about adventures though unexplored areas of forests, mountains, and waterfalls. I am starting to find, however, that beauty can be found even in large, industrialized cities like Los Angeles if you take the time to look for it. I found this scene on my campus right along the path I take to class everyday. I squeezed though some unnoticed bushes and found myself in a new land of blossoming wildflowers and massive trees. The surrounding foliage shrouded the campus view and revealed only the peak of an elegant UCLA structure complimented by calming sunset light and flowers. For a moment I had escaped the city. For a moment I had found my utopia.
