We hope you enjoyed the Fall Adventures Photo Contest as much as we did. For those non-photographers in the community who like to share their backcountry adventures in other ways, keep an eye out for our next contest - which we'll announce with a new partner in the New Year!


ALL STUNNING PIX! Congrats to the winners and thanks so much fr sharing. Let's have MORE contests like this. Prizes or not, it is fun to see all the great pictures!

Awesome. Congrats to the winners. All the pics are amazing.

Congrats to the winners and thanks to all for sharing.  I hope there are more photo contests - I really wanted to enter this one, but (gasp) didn't even go on any adventures this fall - just one foliage road trip, and a road trip didn't seem to fit the spirit of a contest on Trailspace...  I did go on one backpacking trip in Sept/Oct, but at that point it was early for real Fall colors - so again, didn't really seem to meet the spirit of the contest.

Nice job, everyone! It's fun and inspiring to see others' photographic talents and backcountry adventures. There were some stunning photos in this batch.

Thanks to everyone who entered, voted, and check out the entries.

A bit disappointing really, perhaps the prizes reflect...
