2012: Year in Photos
At any given minute, we can be sent to any given place. This year was no different, as our reports took me to the shores of Guatemala, atop the temples of the Mayans, the prairie of America, all over the Pacific Ocean and to survey the massive power of mother nature. Along the way, these sites caught my eye during our coverage.
