15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Braving the snowfield

This is a photo from a memorable mountain hike in April 2016. Our party was climbing Mount Artavaz in Armenia but most were completely unprepared for snow which had not yet melted. We labored through thigh-deep snow for a couple of hours but it definitely was a day to remember!
