Camp Hyrule 2006's winning cabin wallpaper

From 1995 until 2007, Nintendo of America and Nintendo Power held an online event called Camp Hyrule. It was a virtual summer camp with simple games, activities, chats with special guests, competition between cabins to have the most participating members, and, of course, lots of promotion for upcoming Nintendo games.

I attended Camp Hyrule in the summers of 2005 and 2006 (if I recall correctly).

In 2006, the theme was Super Mario Galaxy and my cabin voted to name itself The Cabin at the End of the Universe in honor of Douglas Adams' Restaurant at the End of the Universe. My cabin won and as a reward, we got this beautiful wallpaper featuring our cabin name and the camp's mascot, Stumpy. Here it is:

Er, yeah, that's about it. I thought the internet might like to have this for posterity's sake. Check out the Nintendo wiki for more info on Camp Hyrule, though there isn't too much info recorded about it.

Update: Cory S. shared some more Camp Hyrule wallpapers via Google+. Thanks for the contribution!
