Know the West

See the ‘backyards’ of the West

The winners of the reader photo contest, plus other favorites.


This year’s reader photo contest was dedicated to the “backyards” of our region. Readers submitted more than 300 photos showing the wonders of the West, farm to field, cityscape to wilderness. Here are the winners in addition to some other striking submissions to the contest.

See all the submissions on the contest page and thanks to MindShift Gear for sponsoring the contest.
