January 2019 Review

Going into 2019, I was excited about the possibility of a new beginning of sorts. Specifically, I wanted to focus more on living instead of just plainly existing and not making the most of everyday like I have in recent years. With that in the back of my mind, I made sure to get out and explore as much as I possibly could. This literally meant hiking from early in the morning to within a half hour of sunset in several instances. Nonetheless, it proved to be a great month to start off a great year! Here’s a quick recap of what I was up to as well as some of my best photographs:

Cheyenne Mountain State Park– 17.5 Miles on January 5th

Lory State Park– 6.08 Miles on January 12th

Green Mountain Park– 3.2 Miles on January 24th

Hall Ranch Open Space and Button Rock Preserve– 15.8 Miles on January 27th

Overall, I think that I really made the most out of January and I’m looking forward to whatever adventures February has in store!
