2013 took me to 5 National Parks in 2 different countries coupled with a few state parks and a handful of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I visited palaces and fortresses, hiked mountains, summited 6 peaks, backpacked along ridge lines and through canyons. The extraordinary views on my adventures provided a plethora of pictures to choose from. Out of thousands of shots I took in 2013 it was tough to narrow it down to just 19 contestants for my Top 10 Favorite Travel Photos of 2013. Come back each day over the next 8 days to check out my top ten!
#9 is a night view of Sokcho, South Korea. I met some wonderful people on this trip the evening before hiking in Seoraksan National Park. The unexpected beauty of Sokcho took me by surprise, especially after turning around from walking to a lighthouse on the pier to this scene! I love the way the reflection highlighted the rainbow of colors as the lighthouses warned the passing ships. Read more about it in Sokcho: the city beneath Seoraksan.
