Congratulations to our 2017 Tales of the Trail photo and video winners!
Nikki Chouinard, a first-time contest participant, snapped the gorgeous shot above while spending the night on the south end of Jewell Island in Casco Bay. We thought her photo captured some of the unique magic of camping on one of the Maine Island Trail’s most popular islands.
Cara Chebuske, MITA member and supporter since 2013, shared an adorable and moving video of her son’s first experience on the Maine Island Trail. It uses only ambient sounds of land and water to capture the special kind of wonder a child can bring to the outdoors. Click here to view the video.
Thanks to everyone who submitted photos, videos, and stories to our contest this year! We’re so grateful for the chance to hear about your adventures. Watch this space and our Facebook and Instagram accounts to see other submissions throughout the winter.
