I took 3rd place in the Recreation Close to Home category of the 21st Appalachian Mountain Club Photo Contest. My photo, Rail Trail Snowshoe, was taken on the Hop River State Park Trail in my hometown of Bolton, Connecticut in February 2015 during our epic winter. The low resolution image in this post doesn’t do it justice.
Debbie, the kids, and I ventured out during a heavy snowfall to explore the trails in Bolton Notch State Park and Freja Town Park. The rail trail is right out our front door. We love where we live.
Congratulations to all of the honorees. We have some amazing photographers in our club.
I had to sit out of the 2014 contest after winning in 2013. I had winning images in 2011 and 2009. At this rate, I sit out every even year! I’m proud to keep my streak of honored images alive, and I’m looking forward to 2017.
