Welcome 2018

I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, but I’m still resolving to write more and take more photos in 2018. I’ve been occupied with work the last couple years and it’s led to a lag in exploring, photographing, and writing. That’s slowly driving me insane. So, I’m committing to one adventurous trip a month, preferably over at least one night, and at least a couple of bigger trips a year too.

So I went out to take some photos today to break my routine. Even tough to break a cycle, it felt right. It made me want to get out again. It made me miss exploring Alaska. It made me remember what it’s like. I’ve really been stuck in a rut for that long. The dog was pretty happy too! The day was perfect, the weather warm and lots of snow stuck to the trees!

I’m really excited to share a new chapter of adventures with you in 2018! I hope everyone has a great start to the year!
