What a whirlwind of a year it's been! A massive thank you to our entire Contributor community for putting so much time, effort, and sweat into getting outside, documenting their adventures, and sharing their work on OP for everyone to enjoy. Without our Contributors, Outdoor Project wouldn't be the platform it is today. Our incredible content and stories come from these individuals, and their continued passion, motivation, and creativity never ceases to impress. 

But it comes as no surprise to us that many of our loyal users have a particular aspect of our site that they love the most: the photos. And we can't blame you. Not a day goes by where the photography on our site doesn't inspire someone to get outside and explore a new place. From panoramic shots of canyon explorations to capturing the Milky Way over Yosemite and climbing action shots in the Swiss Alps, one can easily get sucked into the worm hole of stunning photography that lives on Outdoor Project. 2018 was no exception, and it was a year of spectacular additions to an already overflowing community portfolio. 

Take a look at some of our all-time favorites from this past year below - in no particular order - and make sure to visit the photo gallery for even more!
