Caption This Photo - The Winner of Week 8

"Mark V." you have 24 hours to send in this week's photo. Go.

Last week BACKPACKER's photo intern Rita put herself out on a limb by submitting this photo:

And instead of nominating half a dozen favorite captions, we decided to choose just one winner and let that person submit this week's photo. So, congrats to Mark V:

See! I told you all that if we just gathered together in a tight group, smiled stupidly, and just waited, someone would come along and take our picture.

Now, let's all just look intently at that rock over there. Wait and see. Soon everyone up here will come over and try to see what we are looking at.
