THIS CONTEST HAS ENDED. It is like no other outing and the everyday doesn't apply. Wouldn't it be great to embark on an adventure with your grandkids and their parents too? The winning photo was selected based on Execution of Theme, Creativity & Originality, and Photographic Quality. Congratulations to our winner, Donna Zajack!

"This photograph of a family of literal tree huggers in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park by Donna Zajack is bursting with charm. The enormous redwood in the center of the frame, coupled with the tininess of the figures surrounding it, gives the image an impressive sense of scale. You can almost feel the wonder of the kids trying to wrap their arms around the tree's giant trunk. The bright shaft of light works to draw the eye to the subjects and adds another layer of depth to the image. All of these items add up to a beautiful photograph of a truly memorable moment." ~Dawn Deeks, contest judge
