In 2014, the nation will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act, a landmark law that has helped protect some of America’s last, great wild country. In Arizona, the Act has created a splendid array of 90 different wilderness areas, from craggy mountain gems in the Sonoran Desert, to plunging red rock canyons, forested plateaus, and lush riparian waterways above the Mogollon Rim.
Join Arizona's celebration by entering your favorite photos from our designated wilderness areas for a chance to win an Arizona Highways Photo Workshop valued up to $2500.
Congratulations to all the winners!
