Photo Gallery: Best of 2019

Unfortunately, my original plan to stay up to date with my adventures on here hasn't gone as I'd hoped. Life has been full of big changes (great, positive change :)) and it has been hard to find the time to keep up. However, I am committed to maintaining this blog in the new year as I continue my adventures. 2020 looks to be shaping up to be an awesome year with a stack of exciting trips planned. In the meantime, here is a gallery of some of my favorite photos and adventures from 2019.
