It’s snowing out. It’s May. I want to be rock climbing, but instead am inside, cleaning out closets, catching up on emails and reflecting on winter. Thanks to some amazing photographers that sent me some of their images, I thought I would celebrate our never ending winter with a little winter review in photos! Thanks to Forest Woodward Photography, Christian Pondella and Rafal Andronowski.
