The photo can be of your friends and family exploring nature, a view of wildlife or a beautiful sunset, for example.
Include a description of your experience in a 50-word caption. Where were you? What were you doing? What captured your attention? Please also include your full name.
The winner will appear on the back cover of the fall 2017 issue of Our Big Backyard.
