New Mexico by way of New Zealand

June 3, 2007

Congratulations, Joelle Linhoff! You’ve just won a trip to Albuquerque!

The 18 year old Minnetonka, MN, native won Smithsonian Magazine’s 4th Annual Photo Contest with A winter dawn in a
New Zealand pasture
. As the the grand prize winner, Joelle “receive[s] a four-day, three-night Smithsonian Journeys Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta weekend adventure for two from October 5-8, 2007 or the cash equivalent.”

Hopefully she’ll take the trip over the ‘cash equivalent,’ although, at 18 I’m sure a few extra Benjamins in the bank is pretty tempting. Than again, as a photographer, one shouldn’t say no to the most photographed event in the world. Choices.

In any event, I think it is pretty neat a trip to Albuquerque was the grand prize. Albuquerque is absolutely a trip, if you’ve never visited the Southwest.

Congratulations, Ms. Linhoff. We hope you’ll visit us in October!
