“My free copy came in the mail yesterday and on page 32 my photo of Chilnualna Falls is there! It's only a small photo, 2-1/2" x 3", but it's mine! It isn't the best picture I've taken, but it fit their need and they contacted me about it. Maybe this will be the first of many photos...or not.
This is the web version of the photo. The print version is a little better...
“Congrats on being published!”
“Congrats Hikin Mike, it's all about the tree in the upper left, killer pic!”
“congrats on getting you pic published..you do get paid right??”
“How much did they pay you for your work?”
“Thanks to all.
Yes I get paid. I'm getting $150. :) It isn't about the money...it's all about my selfless contribution to the world of backpacking.
Okay, it is about the money! :)

“that is one hot waterfall, congrats!”
Make those sucka's PAY!!!!!!! ;-)”
“Hope you got paid LOTS for it!
“good for you
so since you have pull with them, can you tell them I no longer want the magazine?
ps, tell them its from a FEARMONGER!”
“What are you buying me with that hot cash?”
I picked up an issue when I was at the Mall...but it's not the newest one apparently...I'll get one though so you can autograph it for me :)”
“I recently sold my first novel, and my fifty-third short story.
Feels good to get published, doesn't it?”
“Maple, I don't even subscribe anymore.
WoundedKnee, Your gift is in the mail. :)
Michael, Stacy picked that one up for me too. It does have 4WheelBob in it from "the other site". I'd send you one, but they only gave me one. :(
Bob, Congrats to you! It is nice, especially knowing they came to me.”
“2.5 x 3 is the same size I ended up with in the Bakersfield Magazine...
and they paid a whopping $8.00
so I would say that National mags pay much...much better!
Congratulations again Mike!”
“i didn't know you were a waterfall”
“Very cool, Mike...at least you got paid. I only got a reputation for carrying a purse, wearing hip-huggers and a tight, ripped shirt on trails in my story about getting lost while hiking;)”
“Great, Mike! My stinkin' couple of published letters pale in comparison to having photos published - I bow to you!!!

“Immortality...your 15 seconds of fame. Congratulations.”
How did you get the gig?”
“YAAAAAAAAA!!! High Five, Mike! Congrats, that's really cool! You've gone pro.”
Pinkbubelz, the photo editor found an image on my website and contacted me about it via e-mail. I almost deleated it thinking it was spam!
Buck, Pro...not even close. Just fortunate.”
“Congrats Mike! That's great!”
“Thats really great Hikin Mike! Congratulations. is it in the latest issue? I can't seem to find it”
“It is the August issue. It isn't out yet.”
“Great job Mike. And I'm definitely glad to hear they paid you (unlike their stupid photo contest that really takes advantage of people who probably don't know photo rights issues)
Fancy meeting you here! Congratulation! I just let my 10 year plus sub to backpacker run out, but I'll pick up a copy of the August issue.
SierraNomad, I haven't forgotten about the DVD Review. I'll try and put something together soon.”
“Thanks. No hurry.
