    I am trying very hard to upload my picture, and your site denies it every time. Help!
    I am not sure what to do.
    Can you please let me know if there is another way??

    Hi Kimberly,

    Picture files must be smaller than 2 MB, so you may want to try reducing the size of your photo to see if that helps.

    If you still can’t get the picture to upload, please send it as an attachment to webmaster@kdl.org, and I can add it to the gallery for you. (Make sure to include a caption and indicate where the photo was taken so we can also mark it on the map 🙂 )
