Goodbye 2017

I feel like I should do a quick recap of all my trips this year since I started this blog so late.

Started 2017 by snowboarding in Vermont right after January 1st.

Snowboarding in Vermont at Mount Snow

Back to back snowboarding trips – a weekend in Poconos.

Deer right outside our house.

Spent President’s Day weekend in Boston.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Knocked off a couple of National Parks off my bucket list on a trip to Arizona & Utah.

First stop was the Grand Canyon.

These curves were amazing – Antelope Canyon.

Horseshoe Bend – pictures can’t do it justice.

The Amphitheater at Bryce Canyon.

Kayaking between canyons at Lake Powell. We even cliff jumped!

Zion National Park is definitely one of my favorite parks.

Angel’s Landing, my favorite hike in Zion.

Breathtaking views at Monument Valley.

Literally a week after this trip, I was back on a plane to Iceland! Iceland has been on my bucket list since senior year of high school. Fun fact: we drove around Iceland in 5 days. It was a crazy but beautiful road trip.

One of my favorite pictures – Viti Crater

Svartifoss. I love waterfalls and Iceland is full of them.

I love just stopping the car in the middle of the road to take in our surroundings.

Whale watching in Husavik.

One of the most dangerous beaches in the world – Black sand beach.

Fjadrárgljúfur – one of the most beautiful spots I ever seen.

Skógafoss. Last picture on my phone from Iceland before the heavy rain destroyed my phone.

Since I had two big trips in May, the rest of my trips during the rest of the year were small getaways. (Besides Japan, of course).

Sipping on my gin and tonic in Atlantic City.

A day hike at Mohonk Labyrinth And Lemon Squeeze. One of my favorite hikes but a hefty entrance fee..

Stonecrop Gardens. Had to visit a couple of gardens this summer .

Camping at Bear Spring Mountain.

Spent Labor Day in D.C.

Exploring another garden – Old Westbury Gardens.

Hiking Mount Beacon. My new favorite day hiking spot.

And my last trip of 2017 – Japan! How this whole blogging thing started. Don’t want to share all the pictures I have since it’s all over my other posts!

Arashiyama Bamboo Forest

Japan was a great trip to end 2017. I’m excited for 2018 and all the adventures to come (and to share here).

Hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!
