Tell us your story:

My family enjoys short hikes. We pick paths that have their own unique adventure, such as: a mild rock climb, a stream crossing, or a place with a great view. We have lots of these trails within a short drive of home. Everyone participates in packing for the hike - this way the kids learn the value of preparation. While my wife and I simply enjoy being outdoors, the kids love exploration; they dont even think of hiking as exercise, as long as there is some challenge or an element of discovery.
Contest Photo Tips and Guidelines:
  • Avoid clutter. Keep the background simple -- your family is the star!
  • Daytime, natural light is best. If your area is bright enough, try taking the photo without the flash.
  • Upload a horizontal photo. If you crop the image on your computer, make sure you keep a landscape 4:3 aspect ratio.
  • For best results, make your image 1200x900 (or "save for web").
  • With a digital camera, you can take as many photos as possible and choose the best one. Have fun!
