Are you ready to go into the wild?

Support your source for local news!
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

First of all, if you haven't seen the wonderful Into the Wild make plans to do so right away. It is one of the rare films that exploits the full power of cinema to transport you into another world and into the consciousness of another person (my enthusiastic review of it is here, tickets here, preview here, music here). After seeing it, I imagine you'll be ready to go on a little adventure of your own and Lonely Planet is giving you the opportunity.

All you have to do is submit a 2-minute video of a moment where you felt truly free or connected to nature. With all the filmmakers in Los Angeles and all the wild places to visit in California, there's no reason an LAist reader shouldn't win the whole shebang! The winner and a friend will get to choose between hikingthrough the Wyoming wilderness, skiingin Idaho, mountaineeringthrough the North Cascades or sea kayaking in Alaska. Good luck!
