Prairie Dogs at Jackalope

Prairie Dogs at Jackalope

by — Jackalope, a store in Santa Fe, has an outdoor courtyard where garden goods are displayed. In the center of the courtyard is a stone wall-enclosed prairie dog colony, relocated about 10 - 15 years ago. St. Francis oversees the prairie dogs, who munch away, growing to mega-sizes compared to their cousins in the wild. Not quite a zoo, not quite a managed colony, is this the future for prairie dogs in the west?

The topic: Do you have a photo that shows how the American West has changed over the years? From wilderness to watered lawns, boomtown to bust - we're looking for images that show how the American West's landscapes and communities have been changed by people, industry, the weather, time itself...

About submitting images: Entrants may submit up to three (3) photos for each photo contest, in JPEG, PNG and GIF file formats only; each image submitted may be no larger than 2 megabytes in size.

About voting on images: Instead of making you choose only one entry to vote for, we decided to allow viewers to vote positively for any entry they want to -- one vote per viewer, per image. But be careful - you can't undo your vote once you've clicked the "vote" button, so CHOOSE CAREFULLY!
