The word “home” conjures up a lot of different sentiments among ranchers. To some it’s spending time with the family. For others its working cattle, enjoying a sunset on the range, or sitting on the porch of the ranch house. All these were represented by readers who entered photos depicting what “home” means to them in the Greeley Hat Works’ “Home Is Where You Hang Your Hat” photo contest.
We received 75+ entries in the contest, which you can view here.
From there, we narrowed the photographs down to 15 finalists, which you can view here.
Then, we asked all of you to help us select our champions. We received a record number of votes with 430 of you weighing in with your favorites. Now, it’s time to announce our winners!
