Hiking & Backpacking Pennsylvania's Wilderness Photo Contest Winner

To celebrate 70,000 members in their Facebook group, Hiking & Backpacking Pennsylvania had a photo contest in August.

The Facebook group has become one of the largest outdoor communities, a place where enthusiasts and novices can come together, share their experiences, and help each other enjoy what nature has to offer.

The wilderness photo contest winner was Terra Haines, for the following description and picture;

"Penn Wood’s is plentiful in diverse natural wonders that could easily fill anyone’s bucket list. The Pennsylvania Grand Canyon and Rickett’s Glen may be some of the most sought after; however, Pennsylvania has more to offer than 90+ foot waterfalls and overlooks that can take your breath away. This photo best represents Pennsylvania wilderness because it depicts a beauty that can often be overlooked, and like Pennsylvania’s Wilderness to some folks, is very seldom seen. Our native timber rattlesnake is not only my favorite critter, but an emblem of what it means to be docile in nature while simultaneously demanding respect, just as the PA wilds.🌲"
