SOUTHWEST
PHOTO CONTEST
The Southwest is a land of changing moods ... a land where contrast is thekeynote and where the blazing desert in the afternoon turns into pastel shades inthe evening . . . where rugged mountains change their shapes from dawn to duskand where wildlife just for a fleeting instant can be captured on
film.
In many of these instances Desert Mazazine readers are there ... at the rightplace at the right second. In order to bring Desert readers these captured moodsand moments we are resuming the Photo Contest started years ago by Randall Hend-
erson,
founder of Desert Magazine.FIRST PRIZE WILL BE $15; SECOND PRIZE, $8. For non-winning pictures ac-cepted for publication $3 each will be
paid.
Although not part of the contest, Desertis also interested in viewing 4x5 color transparencies for possible front cover use.We pay $25 per transparency. Both black and white and color are for first publi-cation rights only.Jack Pepper

WALK-IN CAMPGROUNDS.
Along with the same controversial sub-ject of how to keep the "wilderness areas" in their natural state, aproposed new plan by Edward F.
