#TTBackcountry Instagram Challenge: 4.12.17

This week’s @Columbia1983 Instagram Challenge is dedicated to your favorite backcountry camping sites: #TTBackcountry

The theme of this challenge was inspired by the seven principles of ‘Leave No Trace’ (LNT).

We want to see your favorite backcountry camping spots, but make sure you’re following the ‘Leave No Trace’ principles! What is ‘Leave No Trace’, you ask? It is a code of outdoor ethics that every explorer should apply to their adventures, whether it’s a day hike or week-long backpacking trip. Take a peek at this blog post to find out more.

Details for Entry:

  1. Upload and tag your photos of your most beautiful and ‘Leave No Trace’ approved backcountry camping sites #TTBackcountry and @columbia1938 between Wednesday, April 12th and Tuesday, April 18th. All entries must be uploaded during these dates to qualify.
  2. Tell us the story behind your photo with a 2 – 3 sentence caption.
  3. We will choose our favorite photo based on the theme, creativity, image quality and storytelling ability, so get creative!
  4. Your photography might get published on the Columbia Sportswear IG and blog!

Off you go and start snapping those inspiring backcountry spots!

Sample Entry:

“I woke up at 5am to what sounded convincingly like a Grizzly Bear sniffing around my tent. It took my breath away, as did the sheer magnificence of the Grand Tetons in the early morning light. There are simply no words to describe the silent strength of these mountains.” @columbia1938 / #TTBackcountry
