Congratulations to our Photo of the Year Winner for 2022, Kelly Lynne Burke! This photo was taken on the “Mountains to the Sea” Faculty Led Program during spring break of 2022, in the Aysen Region of Chile, Patagonia. Kelly told us what a beautiful experience the trip was, “not only the locations, but also with the students and faculty involved.”
