THE JOURNAL
People, places and things from around the state, including a spruce tree that helps fight scurvy; yoga classes on the South Rim, literally; and Page, our hometown of the month.

FOREVER YOURS
Fifty years ago this month, the Wilderness Act was signed into law, and with that signature, some of the most spectacular places in Arizona were given the ultimate protection. No roads. No vehicles. No mining. No logging. No permanent structures. Just pure wilderness. Forever.
A portfolio edited by Jeff Kida

LONG EXPOSURE
To a photojournalist, a 30-second exposure is considered a long exposure. Photographers like the technique, and so do we. That’s why we sent John Burcham into the field with his Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a bagful of lenses. The subject was Bismarck Lake, but instead of 30 seconds, we asked for 365 days. He agreed, and for the past 12 months, that’s what he’s been doing. Shooting the lake.

BEST PICTURE 2014
And the winner is ... Chikku Baiju of Chandler, Arizona. It wasn’t an easy choice, especially when you see the runners-up, but after looking at thousands of entries — landscapes, close-ups and nature shots — in our sixth annual photo contest, he’s the winner. It’s an incredible image, and so are all the rest.
Edited by Jeff Kida & Keith Whitney

CAPTURING THE MOMENTS
The Cuban Revolution, Martin Luther King Jr.’s legendary speech, JFK’s funeral ... to have been at any one of those historic events would be notable. For Flagstaff’s Dan Budnik, the dean of Arizona photojournalists, that’s just the beginning of a career that touched some of the biggest cultural events of the 20th century.

SCENIC DRIVE
Mount Lemmon: By definition, all scenic drives have something to offer in that regard. This one, however, has more range than most — in its 30 miles, it goes from saguaros to aspens, with some incredible views in between.

HIKE OF THE MONTH
Oak Trail: In addition to the Arizona white oaks for which it’s named, the Oak Trail offers a great introduction to the ecosystem below the Mogollon Rim.
