At the end of each year, the Truckee Travel Guide Facebook Fans will get to vote on all the Monthly winners to determine an "Annual Photo Contest Winner".

Dan McCready - Warning Sign at Heavenly Valley Ski Resort

August 2011 - Photo Contest of the Month Winner:
Dan McCready of Wichita Falls, Texas

Dan standing next to a Ski Resort Warning Sign at Heavenly Mountain Resort.

Dan is one of my son Ryan's good friends, back when they both went to Roseville High School, in Roseville, California. He is now a Pilot, and a 1st Lt for the United States Air Force! This picture was taken during Christmas Break in 2006, and is of Dan standing next to a Warning Sign at Lake Tahoe while snowboarding. The view of Lake Tahoe in the background is spectacular!!

What I loved about this photo also, is that Dan's T-shirt has almost a matching warning sign - same skullhead with a warning that "Friends don't let Friends go to Hell".

Dan's winning photo will be featured on the Truckee Travel Guide Home Page during the month of September 2011. I've also used a couple of Dan's photo's on my Paintball page that are awesome!!
