AVALANCHE ROAD!!!! Adds a good laugh to a great photo. Tough to get good photo with bright sun in background, but it is well done, with great detail in the blowing snow. The angle of the post from the right edge into the center of the photo and the snow blowing caught at the right instant... looks like a simple photo taken on the fly, but it obviously was thought out and framed perfectly. A step or two either direction and it wouldn't have been what it is.

BEST FEATURE SERIES3rd PlaceMarcus TraxlerPierre Capital JournalPulse of the Plains
This was such a great series it was difficult to place it third. Very interesting and the subject matter pertinent to the area. Overall the writing was excellent. One criticism is the use of the word "that." Example: Minish said that although the casual ...; and: Minish noted that ...; In these instances and a few others, the word is an unnecessary word. It is not always unnecessary, but there were several instances such as the two examples I found (not "that" I found) where it was unnecessary.
