Readers, you never cease to amaze us. Last year, you traveled to some incredible places, from Antarctica to Zimbabwe and everywhere in between. Thankfully, you took truly evocative photos that transported us there with you. Coming up with just one grand-prize winner and 10 honorable mentions was tough, but we think we've picked some of the best, most inspirational travel images out there. Take a spin through our winners' gallery to be inspired just like we were. (And you can see all of our entrants in Your Best Travel Photos of 2013.)
Congrats to our grand-prize winner, who received $2,000 credit from Jetsetter (and the opportunity to snap a million more photos!). Here is what BeckelsD had to say about her winning photo, above:
"I went to Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, New Braunfels, Texas, to see the twin reticulated giraffes when they were 3 weeks old (May 2013). This is Wasswa, the infant female being nuzzled by her mom. They are reportedly only the second set of living twins ever born in the US."
Equipment: Canon Rebel T3i with Tamron AF18-270mm lens.
