A big thanks to everyone who sent in photos from my last post! Our contact at NGS said he was very impressed by and grateful for all the images he received from Obs members -- way to go!
He just wrote in again saying that the focus of the article had shifted away from Lakes of the Clouds hut and hikers, and more towards wildflowers. In his words, "It has changed to a story only on wildflowers. I would like photos of wildflowers that carpet the rugged landscape in late spring. Photos of people hiking among the wildflowers. I am looking for a wider shot of the flowers and the landscape but please submit a few detail shots as well. Diapensia, Lapland Rosebay, and Alpine Azalea are flowers mentioned in the article."
His new deadline is this Friday, 4/17. Again, please send just a small collection of your absolutely best shots (after all, this is National Geographic!). His contact info is the same:
National Geographic Adventure Magazine
Thank you, and good luck!
