Thanks for reading our blog series. To read from the beginning, go here. We want to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to everyone who has supported us, most notably our families, our friends in Telluride, and the folks at Mountainfilm who provided the inspiration to undertake our journey and a forum to share our experience.

We really appreciate you reading our blog posts these past months. Some were long, some were short, some were pretty good, and some were probably a little less interesting than you might have hoped. We conveyed our experience here in Ghana as best we knew how, but sometimes, words just don’t suffice. So for this week’s blog post, please enjoy a selection of photos from our trip. No reading involved!

As day three of Tim DeChristopher’s trial wraps up, there’s still an outpouring of support; visible on the ground and virtually.

DeChristopher testified today, in which he emphasized that his purpose for going inside the auction was to “have a louder voice.”

That morning I had realized that the protest wasn’t really going to have much of an impact, and this auction deserved more than just holding a sign. I wanted to go inside and take stronger action to really raise a red flag as to what was going on there.

If you want to read Tim’s entire testimony, the Salt Lake Tribune has the full version on their website.

It’s time for the final round of prizes for our official photo contest!

Mountainfilm is dedicated to educating and inspiring audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining. That’s our mission statement and we think it nicely captures what we’re about. We wonder what it may convey to others.

To help us find out, we’re looking for photos that communicate either all or any part of our mission statement. What kind of photos do we expect to find? Anything from inspiring adventure photos to landscape shots of beautiful natural spaces to portraits of people taking action and working for positive change. The contest theme is broad because we want to see all the ways that our mission may speak to you.

As incentive to enter our Mountainfilm Photo Contest, we’re offering a chance for a little fame and fortune. Every week leading up to the contest, we’ll be featuring a photo on our blog, The Conversation.

First Ascent JacketWe’ll choose a couple winning shots at the end of the month and give away a First Ascent Mountain Guide jacket and a couple of sweet packs from our friends at Osprey.

Best of all, we’ll also be giving away our grand prize at the end of this month: a VIP festival pass and lodging. We’ve had so many excellent submissions and we want to you to help us pick the grand prize winner. In the next couple of weeks we’ll be asking you to vote on our top picks!

Want to submit? Just go to the Mountainfilm Flickr pool and upload your best shots. Be sure to include a description so we know where your picture was taken.

Good luck!

Thanks to JanSport and Horny Toad for supplying prizes. Winners, we’ll be in touch!
