2013 took me to 5 National Parks in 2 different countries coupled with a few state parks and a handful of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. I visited palaces and fortresses, hiked mountains, summited 6 peaks, backpacked along ridge lines and through canyons. The extraordinary views on my adventures provided a plethora of pictures to choose from. Out of thousands of shots I took in 2013 it was tough to narrow it down to just 19 contestants for my Top 10 Favorite Travel Photos of 2013. Come back tomorrow to see my favorite picture from all of 2013!
#2 is a brilliant shot of the sea crashing into wave breakers during a storm in Sokcho, South Korea. I had no idea what I was in for when I went to Sokcho and thought it would merely be the rest stop before hiking in Seoraksan. You can read more about it in Sokcho, the city beneath Seoraksan.
