The 2014 Mountain Gazette Survivor Contest
It takes guts, grit, and a desire to live against the grain to live in a mountain town. You have to adapt and you are often struck by the brunt of mother nature’s wrath–forest fires, windstorms, mudslides, floods, wild animals, run-ins with the law, even just the challenge of living far away and off the grid. But that is part of why you live where you do. You and your town are survivors. Here at the Mountain Gazette, we have been working with the Lyons Outdoor Games to help rebuild that tough Colorado mountain town that was almost wiped off the map by catastrophic floods last fall. And we want to know, how have you and your town survived? How are you a survivor? Send us your photos and your story. We will choose ten finalists and post them on MountainGazette.com and let you, our readers, choose the winner. The grand prize winner will be published on MG and receive a new Solar Zephyr jacket from Rab Mountaineering, a pair of Propet sandals, and a Mountain Gazette tee. Finalists receive publication, hydration and a bottle from Skratch Labs and MG stickers. We look forward to hearing your stories.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
