Send us your photos!

The Echo Press is asking readers to share their "fun in the lakes area" photos!

Sends us photos of you or your family or friends enjoying all that the Douglas County lakes area has to offer, during any season of the year.

Swimming, gardening, waterskiing, biking, wakeboarding, rollerblading, tubing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, running, walking, golfing, softball, tennis, picnicking, feeding the ducks, playing at the park or the beach, snowboarding, snowshoeing, downhill or cross country skiing, snowmobiling, playing in the snow, ice skating, shoveling, hockey...

There are just a few ideas, but maybe you've got other great shots you'd like to share that tell about life in the local area.

E-mail your full color photos to Tara Bitzan at or mail to or drop off at 225 7th Ave. E, Alexandria, MN 56308.

Select photos may appear on covers of some of our special publications, or be published in the Echo Press. All appropriate submissions will be posted to our online Reader Photo page at
