2009 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest

I was quite pleased to have two winning photos in the 2009 Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest. This was the 15th annual contest and the third time that I have submitted entries. It was all done digitally this year through the AMC Flickr page.

Title: Comparing Loads

I took this photo during our June hut to hut trip in the White Mountains. We met Hut Croo member, Taylor Burt, just as he was starting up the Old Bridle Path on the way to Greenleaf Hut. Croo members are famous for carrying huge loads.

Calm Before the Dinner Storm

I took this photo only a matter of hours after the photo of Taylor, Debbie, and Shep. We had gotten settled at Greenleaf Hut and had dinner. Everyone was outside, lounging on rocks, and taking in the incredible evening light. The cloud formations on the Franconia Ridge were beautiful. I took a lot of photos of the mountains, but it was the illuminated kitchen that caught my eye. I captured the image.

The other 10 photos honored are fabulous.

#atl Starting the 2017 #trailrunning season in style...and on a Monday morning in the #caribbean to add to the fun! @trailrunningmom won the 13.8 mile #stjohntrailrace in 2:37. She wasn't far behind me. The @virginislandsnps trails were gnarly and it was hot. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders @altrarunning #altrarunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @julbousa #julbousa #family #hiking #stjohnusvi @virginislandsnps #virginislandsnps Nice colors on our early A.M. flight. #md88 #JT8D #aerospace #sunrise ☀️ I'm pumped! I scored 47 vintage @appalachianmountainclub #Appalachia Journals (various issues between 1916-1979) with a #craigslist purchase. The process started with a #google Alert, and then after an email inquiry, followed by a text, and then a call; the terms were set. Hours later I pulled off the Mass Pike on my commute home from #sterlingmachine and did the deal in a commuter lot. I was fascinated by the seller's full time career in dealing ephemera and other collectibles. I'll add these to the stack of unread magazines, including the 10 boxes of vintage @natgeo magazines I scored years ago that @trailrunningmom keeps asking me where I plan to store them. We need more bookshelves. I've been getting Appalachia via mail twice/Year for 20 years and it has been published continuously since the #appalachianmountainclub founding in 1876. We wrapped up this snowy week with an afternoon #snowshoe "commute" to Little D's @girlscouts Brownie meeting and back. We are quite fortunate to have trails right out our front and back doors. #carfreecommute #boltonheritagefarm #rosefarm My favorite #denmother at the @thecubscouts Pack 157 Blue & Gold Dinner this past Friday. She even won the 50/50 raffle with one of these tickets. #cubscouts
