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 2 days to see the final 2!
#3 brings us back to South Korea in Bukahnsan National Park. This picture was a favorite for a few reasons; first my brother actually took the picture and we had an awesome time hiking together! Second, the scenery and climb highlight everything I have loved about Bukhansan and make me look forward to visiting it again and again! You can read more about it in Back to Bukhansan National Park.
Whats your favorite part of this picture? What is your favorite part about climbing? I love the exercise and the views!
