1998 Hikes

From 10 hikes in 1997 to 28 hikes to 1998. Hiking and photography was now my priority. This was the first year I did hikes outside of California, going on a week-long trip to Utah for Bryce, Zion, and a quick stop at the Grand Canyon. It was also the scene of an epic trip up Mount Dana, which really inspired me to reach higher in 1999.
