Karen Grubb’s winning #History entry from Cusco, Peru.

With so many wonderful photos and fabulous travel stories highlighting history, Trover Ambassador Laurence Norah had a tough time choosing the winner. In the end, Laurence loved the colorful capture of this lively moment in a historic setting, along with a detailed description providing interesting context to this travel tidbit. Noting a great photo can transport the viewer to the scene, Laurence imagined himself witnessing this moment thanks to Karen’s photo. We asked Karen to share more about her winning discovery and herself with the Trover community.

I’m from San Luis Obispo, California. My passions include travel and pretty much anything outdoors. I’m happiest up in the mountains with a little dirt under my nails and grease in my hair.

I don’t normally gravitate towards larger cities but I fell in love with Cusco! The architecture in the main square is beautiful. It’s a great place to get a sense of Cusco’s history through the juxtaposition of Inca and Spanish colonial architecture. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this religious procession during the Fiesta de la Virgen Natividad on my last day in the city.

Thank you, Karen, for sharing your spectacular photos and highlighting this historic (and beautiful!) destination. Check out more of Karens’s finds and follow her on Trover to see what she discovers on a future adventure to the Scottish Highlands, inspired by her daughter, Skye, and an appreciation of the Outlander series set in the majestic Scottish landscape.

Thank you, Laurence, for making the tough decision and to all of the Trover community for sharing your extraordinary #History travel stories! See the full list to discover the history behind the world’s hidden gems!

#Adventure Photo Contest Winners

Congratulations to David Morring for his jaw-dropping discovery from Alabama! The radiant shot of a caver rappeling into Stephen’s Gap is the Grand Prize Winner of the #Adventure Photo Contest. David takes home an epic prize of $3,000 for travel and $3,000 of Eddie Bauer gear. Congrats, David!

David Morring’s #Adventure discovery from Alabama.

Growing up in northern Alabama, David’s thorough exploration of his small town’s nooks and crannies planted the seeds of his passion for travel. He’s wandering a bit further from home now, managing to tick off 12 countries in the last 12 months. We asked David to tell us a bit more about his winning photo and the adventure in his own backyard: “Most people don’t know that northern Alabama is a Mecca for caving. There are more than 3,000 caves within a hundred-mile radius of my hometown of Cullman. Stephen’s Gap is a 143-foot pit in Jackson County, Alabama. I’d joined several of my childhood friends to go “bounce” (rappel and ascend) the pit. I rapped to the bottom with my photo gear. Around 10 a.m. the sunlight cascaded through the entrance and illuminated the pedestal at the bottom. One of the cavers, Sharon Clayton, clipped into the rope, and I began shooting as she descended into the shaft of light. It was truly an other-worldly moment where everything aligned for the perfect shot. I’m just thankful I was there to capture it.” So are we, David!

Adventure Photographer and Trover Ambassador Jeff Bartlett loved David’s stunning scene. The competition was close and three runners-up will take home $250 for travel & Eddie Bauer gear for their next adventure. Congratulations to Liana Manukyan, Darrel Comeau, and Keith Sutter for their fantastic finds.
