GBI Photo Contest February 2020 Submissions

GBI Photo Contest February 2020 Submissions

The GBI Photo Contest continued to prove that our field personnel not only have great dedication to our landscapes, but also have a great eye for framing it. February’s winner is Research Associate Dorian Miller, who is serving as Archaeology Technician at Death Valley National Park. He describes the image as “The view east towards historic Geologists Cabin with Striped Butte in the background. Taken while on a cultural survey for the installation of a burro exclusion fence in Butte Valley at the southeastern extent of Death Valley National Park.”

Congratulations to Dorian and to all who submitted such great photos to the contest. A selection of these appears below.
