Wow...tough one here.


Best Post - OkieHiker's Cattail Canyon post.
Best Thread - Where am I?  Lots of fun with that one.
Best Photo - so many good ones to choose from; not easy; I will go with the series of photos posted under the "Sunsets" thread...

Best Post - OKiehikers Cattail Canyon, although I like ALL of OKiehikers posts, this post solved a long running question for me (since I heard of the rescue effort through the rumor mill not first hand).
Best Thread - Muse's where am I.  Very entertaining and invoked group participation
Best Photo - Vipers Lion, this also wins the big #%&*'s award for climbing up on a rock and taking a picture of a lion on the other side of the rock.  Some of OKiehikers pictures from Cattail Canyon and Mariscal Mtn tie for this award but since I am already voting him best Post he gets 2nd place for best Photo... TWWG

For now this is all I will be nominating.  It was an easy choice for me, as it is so much better than any other thread.  I'll have to think about the other categories, as they are a lot closer.

OK...

I'm officially voting.

Post- http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/general-questions-and-answers/because-its-a-healing-place-t459.0.html   really hits home and sums it up for me.

Thread- http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/big-bend-photographs/the-next-photo-will-have-t4478.0.html  I think it's more fun than my "Where Am I", as we're all scrambling through our photo databases!

Photo- http://www.bigbendchat.com/portal/forum/big-bend-photographs/the-most-amazing-sunset-t4445.0.html   the first of this series. The cloud cover, the depth, the sun, the colors....

though it is obvious what most prefer, i'll put in my two cents:

mountaindocdanny's post from last winter on the rim and in the snow was great.

i like the "the next photo will have.." thread though i wish i was able to contribute more.

there have been so many astonishing pictures that i can't choose one.  i know...pretty much a cop-out.   sorry
