#HappierPlace Instagram Favorites – December 2018

Horsetooth Reservoir covered in snow - Colorado HappierPlace

During the hustle of the holidays, people still managed to share inspiring outdoor photos tagged #HappierPlace on Instagram. Here are just a few that will make you want to have fun outside.

To keep things fresh, we’re only showing one photo per photographer in this post and won’t repeat pictures we’ve already re-posted in our Instagram gallery. The only exception is the photo that won this month’s giveaway. Therefore, this is just a very small selection of all the photos tagged #HappierPlace on Instagram in December.

Want to see your own photos featured?

Make sure you follow @Happier_Place on Instagram and use the hashtag #HappierPlace when posting your outdoor photos. That way you assure us that we have permission to share your photo on our website and/or on Instagram (always with credit, of course).
