2022 Adventuring – A Year in Review

I've always seem to be here or there over the last decade, but damn, 2022 was a doozy! What a year, what a year!! Nine states (including the District of Columbia - new for me!).

October 2, 2022 The weather was not willing to play nice during this trip to Yellowstone. Upon waking up to another chilly, rainy day with precipitation forecasted throughout the day, Eric and I took to debating the day's itinerary I had planned. Ideally, we would be heading to Dunraven Pass to summit Mount Washburn in… Continue reading Falling for Yellowstone: Day 3 – Mammoth Hot Springs, Wraith Falls, Tower Falls, Dunraven Pass, & Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
