2017 was the best year of my life. I had my first mountaineering experience at Mount Washington. I climbed some gnarly rocks in Mexico. I lived in Yosemite for the summer, climbing and hiking nearly everyday and learning to lead trad and aid. I spent a semester abroad traveling through Europe; kayaking in fjords, a road trip around Romania, a solo journey in the Balkans and seeing a whole lot of architecture. I got certified as a Wilderness First Responder, and finished the year with a ski trip in West Virginia. I met some amazing people and would like to thank everyone who helped made this year so rad. The pressure is on 2018.
