Last year, seven lucky readers were sent on assignment to report on lifelist locations like Glacier and Sequoia/Kings Canyon National Parks and unknown gems like Quebec’s Parc National de la Gaspesie and Wyoming’s Gros Ventre Wilderness. Their stories and photos appeared in our 2012 Readers’ Choice issue. Fill out this application for your chance to hit the trail as a Backpacker field scout. We’ll contact the best entrants in May 2012.
