ECCO ‘Take A Hike’ Photo Contest (30 Readers Will Win!)

This week we launch a photo contest with ECCO, including a grand prize trip to Canyonlands National Park with Moab-based Deep Desert Expeditions. In addition, 29 gear prizes — including the premium ECCO BIOM Hike 1.1 and BIOM Terrain Plus footwear — will be awarded. 30 readers in all will win!

‘Take A Hike’ Photo Contest — The Rules: Send us your best hiking, scrambling, peak-bagging, or trail running images. We’ll display the image on the site and will judge based on quality, originality, fun, humor, and the overall “I-wanna-go-there” factor of your photo.
