I say this every year but this is always my favorite post to write. A chance to stop and look back at the year and all the things iv'e done. When I start to feel stagnant, reading these post are reminders of all the amazing things I have done. Looking back, 2016 was crazy mix of mountains and oceans. I spent about half the year in the west, and the other half in the east. Some months I climbed peaks and others I went scuba diving. This post, above all, was a reminder that 2016 was pretty good to me. If you love these reviews as much as I do, you can check out A Year In Review 2015 and 2014. In the meantime, lets take one more look at 2016 before ringing in the new year. Or in other words, see some pictures of Katie in awkward poses around the globe.
This year started out with a BANG! Right after the holidays I took off for a week to the beautiful Madeira Island with my parents and 6 other aunts and uncles. I did some scuba diving, saw some mountain peaks, visited a trout farm, saw the botanical gardens, sled down the streets in a toboggan, toured some lava tubes, and saw the natural pools. I took a trip to NYC and ate some delicious Brooklyn Pizza. Towards the end of the year friends were in town and we got in some skiing at Brighton, Snowbasin and Snowbird.
