From photos of cattle drives in Kenya to old huts and new power lines in South America, our readers sent in their eco-vacation photos for our weekly user-generated slideshow. Some travelled far -- cramping their carbon-conscience lifestyle -- by flying to South America and Australia, but kept their environmental impact down by biking and buying local food while there. Others ventured to new places but stayed closer to home -- like the Lobert family (pictured) who travelled to neighboring province British Columbia, Canada -- and slept in tents, utilized public transit, and enjoyed the great outdoors. So take a breath of fresh air and your next eco-vacation virtually in our Readers' Eco-Vacation Photos: Hiking, Biking, Camping, and More Slideshow.
