Favorite Photos - 2020 Edition

Well, another year is in the books. It wasn't normal - not by any stretch of the imagination, but we were lucky to get a lot of great trips in despite the precarious situation that the world found ourselves enveloped by for most of the year.

As the end of the year rolls around, I recalled enjoying the process I went through for the first time last year - picking through my photos from the year, re-remembering all the great times, so I figured I'd do it again!

So let's get started.

My Favorite Photo

I liked this photo when I took it, but it has even more meaning to me now.

Of my dad - standing in perhaps his favorite spot on the planet. He'd planned to leave a few hours earlier, but just couldn't pull himself away - delaying his departure a few final moments with a look out over a landscape that he knew down to the very last inch. Neither of us knew at the time, but we'd never see it the same way again.

Never Forget.
(Escape to the Sierras)
