Play the OTM Backcountry Booty treasure hunt contest and you get to explore different trails around the region and possibly win gift certificates for cool outdoor gear and other prizes. Here’s how it works:

1. We hide a booty certificate, that’s good for whatever prizes are up for grabs, along a trail somewhere in a park or recreation area in the greater Spokane area.
2. We name the general location and offer up a few clues and photos on Facebook and the Out There Monthly website (scroll down on this page for the clues and pics). Check the contest page at OutThereMonthly.com to review all the clues for the current booty.
3. We keep giving out clues on Facebook until someone finds the booty and wins!
4. Winners post a victory photo on Out There Monthly’s Facebook page to confirm that it’s been found, and then we let them know where to pick up the prize(s)!

Backcountry Booty clue #3:  Keep climbing.

Be careful on this goat trail and stay away from rock ledges and cliffs--no rock climbing required to find this booty.

Backcountry Booty clue #2:  There are plenty of excellent views close to where this prize is hidden, but you won’t see much in the way of far-off scenery when you’re standing in front of this booty’s hiding place.

Could be near where these guys grow!
