The Year of the Elements
Holy crap, what a ride! January is something like our 10th month of blogging. In March we’ll reach that coveted anniversary date. You know that saying that’s something like “lots of small businesses fail within the first year”? Well, suck it, statistics! We’re here, and stronger than ever. I really wanted to take a second just to look back on 2016 and see what we’ve done. This post will mostly be pictures, but, this is gonna be fun! Let’s jump into it. Looking back at 2016 with Moore Elements!
The start of the website! Woah! This started off as my platform to reach clients for my business. It’s transformed (for the better) into what we’ve got today! Now we’ve just got a dedicated page for people to contact us about getting some business stuff done. I might add, that’s doing really, really well. 😀 Here’s that page if you wanted to check it out.
Succor Creek and the Owyhees
Our first ever adventure! Holy cow. I’m genuinely misty eyed looking at all these pictures! haha. Look at these terrible quality pictures! oh man. Pictures with our phones. We’ve come a long way! You can check out that post here!
I still love Jump Creek. More than I should, probably. We still need to do a part two for this post, since we had an issue where we lost all of our pictures from the day. (don’t ask). I seriously can’t believe I got away with these grainy images. haha. Man, you’ve put up with a lot!
Idaho State Penitentiary
Easily one of my favorite attractions in the Boise area. The Idaho State Pen is a really cheap way to spend the day. It’s full of history and ghost stories, too. So it’s got that going for it.
Okay, seriously. If you don’t go check out Babby Farms this summer over in Caldwell, you’re missing out. Really.
The Kuna Caves
Easily one of our most popular posts! Both of the Kuna Cave adventures were wild. The second one is personally my favorite, but hey, I might be a little biased. You can see part 1 here, and here’s part 2!
The Cross Country Tour
The most wild time I’ve ever had was when we trekked across the country over the course of two weeks. We saw some awesome stuff. Like Mount Rushmore, New Orleans, Washington DC, Roswell, it goes on and on. Probably the most fun we’ve had while doing this thing.
Christmas at Home
We wound up the year with some winter wonderland action in our hometown. We finally upgraded our camera, so from here on out the pictures are going to be awesome (except for the old posts I’m sitting on from our road trip 😉 )
The Sierra Letter
I can’t look back at 2016 without talking about The Sierra Letter. I can’t say enough good things about it. For those of you who don’t know, my brother, Tom, wrote a short story that’s featured in its entirety on the site. You can start reading the first chapter here. It’s damn good and one of the most popular things we’ve done on the blog. The amount of views on that bad boy is amazing. Couldn’t do it without you guys!
2016 was our rise. 2017 is when we’ll grab the world by storm. Thanks for coming along with us on this wild ride. We really couldn’t do any of this without you. So thank you for stopping by and checking out this post today. Let’s show 2017 what we’ve got. See you out there, and stay epic!
