Congratulations to the Winners of the KMTA Photo Contest!

We had an abundance of awesome photos submitted to the KMTA Photo Contest. The entries we received highlighted the beauty of the KMTA corridor and with the sweeping, majestic views in the background it is obvious there are plenty of ways to play! Thanks to all who participated and shared the beautiful scenery of the KMTA National Heritage Area! We look forward to seeing next year’s entries.
