The Rover in January 2015: skiing, ice climbing, snowshoeing.
In 2015, this little blog of mine was visited by a few hundred thousand people in 167 countries (out of 196). I myself have only been to a dozen or so countries (in North, Central and South America and Europe) and I’m more than a little flabbergasted by the wanderlust of my words. In 2016, I’m gunning for the good fortune to visit at least two more countries – Nepal and India – and for the Blonde Coyote to travel even farther – and further. Thanks to everybody for following the “world renowned” Blonde Coyote and Happy New Year! 🙂
Here are a few of my favorite photos from a few of my favorite moments over the past year. Remember: Success has less to do with the accumulation of things and more to do with an accumulation of moments and creating a successful life might be as simple as determining which moments are the most valuable and seeing how many of those I can string together in a line. – Pam Houston
