Commonly referred to as America’s Big Backyard, Utah’s public lands feature some of the most spectacular and varied scenery in the world. While exploring public lands, you can’t help but take pictures of the striking landscapes. The Bureau of Land Management Utah recently invited the public to share these photos via a BLM-sponsored photo contest, so all can enjoy the special moments and places that have been captured.
