OK, this is really awkward but I promise you it was not rigged! Unfortunately, not many of you submitted your vote for the final photo contests. Because my sisters are loyal family members, the majority of the votes came from them so it stands to reason that two of them were the winners, right? So my younger sister, Bev, won a jar of Huckleberry Jam for choosing the most beautiful photo, while my older sister, Donna won a jar for choosing most fun/cute photo. They’re in for a treat – none of us knew that huckleberrys were a real thing and were delighted to find this unknown treat in the Wild West.
The winning photo for most beautiful was the T. A. Moulton barn in Jackson Hole, WY. I’m glad that photo was recognized by all of you because my sister, Marj made me get up around 4:45 in order to be there for the sunrise on the Tetons. It was an early morning but so “worth it” as the changes over the mountains were amazing. I highly recommend being at the barn for sunrise if you’re ever in the area.
The winning photo for most cute/funny goes to my sweet hubby, Howie. He was so excited about going to his top pick for the trip, Dinosaur National Monument in Utah. I believe that I captured the child-like happiness on his face which caused you all to vote for that photo. There’s nothing like pure joy on a childs face, right?
And none of us will forget the video I shot of Marj tearing through the streets of West Yellowstone on her hot-rod scootie chair. I still laugh whenever I think of her racing me to the campground. Of course, it was chosen as the best video of the trip!
I’m hoping you all will be following us this summer as we travel up the entire eastern coastline, from Florida to Maine, then traveling west through Amish country, Niagra Falls, the North Woods, down through Illinois as we head for home. This trip, like the last one, will be about four months, leaving July 1st and returning home at the end of October.
Please consider “subscribing” to my blog which you then will get notice each time I post. And get active with voting for your favorite photos – you never know what unknown product we might find in the East which would become the prize for the voting winners!
As always…….Happy Trails! Until we meet again!
