Gordon Graves won the first Name the Rock Photo Contest sponsored by the Greater Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce with “Dueling Grabazoids,” taken southwest of Bennett Pass near Panaca. Graves is a Caliente resident who enjoys photographing Lincoln County’s attractions. He was a first-place winner in a Cathedral Gorge State Park Photo Contest two years ago, and the park used his photos for new postcards and a “hat pin,” says Barbara Rohde, a ranger with Cathedral Gorge State Park and the Greater Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce secretary.
The second-place winner, Keith Stever, was raised in Pioche and took his photo, titled “Hotel Rock,” a number of years ago. Third-place winner Bob Brown of Las Vegas enjoys riding ATVs in Lincoln County with his wife. He named his rock “The Hitchhiker.” He found the formation along the Silver State OHV Trail.
“This was a popular contest and will be repeated again next year,” Rohde says. For more information, visit lincolncountynevada.com.
