January Photo Contest Honorable Mentions: Top 10 Hiking Destinations

Author: Outdoor Research

January 20, 2015

Between January 13th and 14th, we hosted a Facebook photo contest. The prompt was anything checked off your bucket list in the spring or summer of 2014 and the winner was awarded a Cathode Jacket and will be featured prominently in our next catalog. In the extremely difficult process of selecting a winner, it is likely that we quadrupled the length of our own bucket lists. Now meet the honorable mentions from the hiking and backpacking bucket list category.
