Hi, my name is Austin, and I am from Maryland. I’m 20 years old and love to travel. During my travels often times I would gaze at the beautiful landscapes and take pictures. I always wondered what it would be like to create an artistic landscape from nothing, and Newt Gardens definitely fulfills that vision of mine.
