Enter the Tahoe National Forest’s 2016 photo contest

TRUCKEE, Calif. — A two-night stay in the recently remodeled Sardine Fire Lookout is the first place prize in this year’s Tahoe National Forest photo contest.

The contest, which runs until Sept. 30, is for photos taken in the Tahoe National Forest of such subjects as wilderness, wildlife, plants, recreation, rivers, lakes, lookouts and landscapes.

Anyone can enter the contest, except for current Tahoe National Forest employees.

See the Tahoe National Forest homepage at http://www.fs.usda.gov/tahoe for contest rules and information on how to submit a photo.

The first place prize of a stay at Sardine Fire Lookout is much coveted.

The popular rental, with spectacular views of pine-covered mountains north of Truckee, fills up fast and normally can be very hard to reserve.

“The Sardine Fire Lookout, much like the nearby Calpine Fire Lookout, gives people the experience of camping above the treetops,” said Michael Woodbridge, Tahoe National Forest Public Affairs Officer. “With 360-degree views, this prize will give our photo contest winner an experience on the Forest they will never forget.

“We’ve received some great entries so far,” Woodbridge said. “We’re looking forward to getting more amazing pictures of the Tahoe National Forest as seen through the eyes of our visitors.”

First, second and third place winners will be announced by the Forest in the fall.

Winners will be recognized on the Forest website, social media pages and other publications.
