My Life Outdoors: 2011 The Year in Review

Well 2011 is coming to a close and I find myself, once again, writing a Year in Review post, despite my strong dislike for such posts. But 2011 was a great year for me. At this time last year I was aggressively participating in a contest hosted by Active Agion to win an all expense paid trip to Glacier National Park. Shortly after 2011 began I discovered I had won that trip. It was a chance of a lifetime and probably the only way I was ever going to get to see Glacier National Park. It changed my life, and now I don’t think I am going to be able to stay away.

Below, is my posts from our Glacier Trip we won.

Apart from that My Life Outdoors became MyLifeOutdoors.com when I finally obtained that domain. I got the chance to hike the South Rim Loop in Big Bend National Park. Large portions of Texas caught fire due to extreme drought. I received a long awaited SPOT messenger for Fathers Day and had to begin contemplating the Responsibility of such a device. In September I surveyed the outdoor blogosphere to determine the The Hiker’s Choice Top Outdoor Blog. And eventually wrote some thoughts on Why We Hike. Now the year comes to and end and I believe I have made new friends in the Outdoor Blogosphere. At the risk of leaving someone out:
If your not on the list…I apologize…Its probably because I don’t feel like you consider me a friend. So if I’m wrong…drop me a line and let me know how good of a friend you are. And I will make sure your on this list next year. 

Most of all I want to thank you for reading and helping me feel like I have a voice in the Outdoor Blogosphere. I really enjoy writing My Life Outdoors and derive satisfaction from knowing someone is actually reading this stuff. Despite my dyslexia and grammar issues. Thank you again.

    Thanks so much for the mention, Steve. It's been great getting to see a little of Texas, which I do miss quite a bit, through your words and photographs. 2012 will be fun!
