16 Best Photos of 2016

Throughout 2016, The Bro’d Trip showed my camera and I all 50 U.S. states, 3 Canadian provinces, and Puerto Rico.

I shot over 16,000 photos in 2016 and I’ve narrowed it down to my 16 favorite (perhaps BEST?) frames.

Here they are, in no particular order:

1. McWay Falls | Big Sur, California

16 Best Photos of 2016

After driving the Pacific Coast Highway for a few hours, beautiful vistas lose their shine. But McWay makes this vista stand out a bit, and for good reason.

2. Summer Glissade | Breckenridge, Colorado

16 Best Photos of 2016

The perfect way to cool off after a long hike is a couple runs down the nearest hill! All it takes is a patch of snow, a rain jacket, and a bit of adventurous spirit.

3. The Wave | Coyotte Buttes, Arizona

16 Best Photos of 2016

If you can win a lottery granting you a permit and hike 3 miles using a bit of a treasure map, you’ll be handsomely rewarded with this desert oasis. The textures of The Wave are unlike anything else you’ll ever experience.

4. Moulton Barn | Grand Tetons National Park, Wyoming

16 Best Photos of 2016

Patience, planning, and some dumb luck put the Milky Way behind Moulton Barn on a clear night. The shooting star wasn’t even necessary to make my night, the sky was just showing off at that point.

5. Morning Stroll | Yosemite National Park, California

16 Best Photos of 2016

Mornings are tough. Views (and furry friends) like these make them much easier.

6. Relient K | Minneapolis, MN

16 Best Photos of 2016

If you cross paths with Matt Thiessen, get ready to have your face rocked off.

7. Perspective | Oahu, Hawaii

Sometimes seeing the same thing from a different angle changes everything.

8. Partial Camouflage | San Juan, Puerto Rico

16 Best Photos of 2016

Whoa, sorry! Didn’t see you there!

9. Glacial Hiking | Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska

16 Best Photos of 2016

Alaska is wild. Need I say more?

10. Late Night At the Office | Asheville, North Carolina

16 Best Photos of 2016

Few people understand what it takes to be able to travel extensively. My partner in crime this year is one of the few I don’t have to explain myself to. Late nights, small offices, uncomfortable chairs, and multiple layers made our world go round.

11. Secret Slot Canyon | Somewhere in Utah

16 Best Photos of 2016

This special little nook is in danger of being destroyed by heavy foot traffic. That said, I can’t tell you where it is. But you can look at this picture for as long as you’d like.

12. Alcan Traffic Jam | Yukon Territory, Canada

16 Best Photos of 2016

It’s cool man, I’ll just wait.

13. Power and Finesse | Niagara Falls, New York

16 Best Photos of 2016

Perhaps more bravery than water in this one.

14. Mardi Gras | New Orleans, Louisiana

16 Best Photos of 2016

“You gonna dance or what?”

15. Reflect | Somewhere in New Hampshire

16 Best Photos of 2016

Lots of time spent driving provides plenty of time for…reflection.

16. Prada Marfa | Marfa, Texas

16 Best Photos of 2016

This fake storefront/art installment (and the scarce pair of tail lights whizzing by) is the only thing to remind you of human existence in this baron stretch of West Texas.
