How was your 2022? I hope you stayed healthy and got outdoors as much as possible with the people you care about—and you enjoyed adventures that inspired you. I’m sharing in this story photos from four major trips I took this year (besides the usual dayhiking, climbing, skiing, etc.): backpacking a five-day loop through a great area of the Wind River Range; six days exploring a couple of relatively obscure and much less-busy routes in the Grand Canyon; 130 miles over nine days through the High Sierra, including a premier section of the John Muir Trail; and spending nearly three weeks in Iceland with my family, trekking the Laugavegur and Fimmvörðuháls trails followed by driving Iceland’s Ring Road and taking dayhikes along it.
