Favorite Images From 2016
What a great year 2016 has been! I got to do a lot of exploring this past year. I discovered some amazing new places and was also able to return to some of my favorite spots. Some of my favorite memories from this year were:
-Exploring Shenandoah National Park which included hiking through shin deep snow in the dark to watch the sunrise from Bearfence Mountain, hiking with my boys to six different waterfalls, and watching some of the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets I have ever seen.

This past year, I got to explore with old friends and new friends, spent lots of time hiking and camping with my two boys, and watched them grow up loving being in the outdoors and exploring new locations with me. If 2017 is only half as much fun as this past year, it’s going to be a very good year.
