FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27, 2013 2013 photos recall outdoor stories After 35 years as the Outdoors scribe for The Spokesman-Review, it’s still a bit startling to look back at a year of work and see where the stories have led me. Sometimes the naturally stunning destinations say it all; other times it’s the subjects — fish, wildlife and people who love the outdoors — who take the spotlight. This photo gallery offers a glimpse of roughly a quarter of the outdoors stories the S-R Outdoors pages covered in 2013. Most of the images are from my cameras, but some are from others who helped cover the field. If you’re in the mood for more, check out a few of my 2013 photo galleries that help give you an armchair tour of special places and stories I explored, such as Shoulder-season Beartooths trek or Seven Devils loop hike or Glacier Peak Wilderness backpack or Wenaha Wilderness backpacking or Healing Waters fly fishing or San Juan Islands bike and hike or Surveying Idaho critters or 2013 Langlauf Nordic skiing event or Sandpoint’s Nordic skiing boom or Deer trapping for research. Whew!
