Alix’s Best Photos & Videos of 2015

I climbed a lot of peaks and went on a lot of adventures this year and along the way I took a photo or two or three…okay, I took a lot of photos.  These are my favorites, and since the year is coming to an end I thought it would be appropriate take a look back at them.  I’d say this summer was the best one I’ve had so far: I met a lot of really great people, I saw some of the most beautiful parts of my home (Colorado), and I feel like I made some lifelong memories.  I can’t wait until next year!  I’m ready for more!
