Since the nights are long, and often cold and windy, we like to enjoy our camper and electronics in the evenings.  I designed and installed ample solar to make sure we have plenty or power, even in bumpy weather and short days of winter.

Shortly after taking this picture we decided to move camp to lower ground since the storm was going to last another 24 hours. Once we relocated to lower ground we attempted to raise the tops on the campers and couldn’t due to the heavy weight of the snow on the roofs.  We had to climb up on the roofs and shovel the snow off to raise them back up.

I've always been fascinated with science, tech and astronomy so when I had the chance to link up with a SETI astronomer staying overnight at the Hat Creek Radio Observatory, I almost lost it.  The facility is small but the shear magnitude of the mission at hand was immense.After spending the day learning about technical operations and photographing the dishes, the astronomer, a colleague, his son and I walked down to the bunk house for spaghetti and beers.

#540 - Russell GoodinRed Desert, Wyoming2012 Ford F2502012 Northstar 850SCCamera Used - Canon Rebel T2iWyoming’s Red Desert is an astonishingly beautiful place.  Many people dismiss the 108-mile stretch between Rock Springs and Rawlins as a desolate wasteland.  To be fair, it certainly seems like a wasteland from the comfort of a climate controlled passenger vehicle.  For some, the only thing worth stopping for are the emerald green lawns and 50 cent ice cream cones at the Little America Travel Center.  On the first leg of a solo 10-day road trip, I was attempting to drive non-stop from my house in Oklahoma City to my parents’ home in Ogden, Utah.  I really had no reason to attempt such a long drive.  It seems silly now.With the truck fueled and packed earlier in the week, I left OKC before 4 AM on Friday, June 30th as mid-summer thunderstorms passed overhead.  I headed north on I-35 to Salina, Kansas, west on I-70 to Denver, then north on I-25 before exiting to US 287 for a scenic shortcut to Laramie, Wyoming.  On schedule to arrive in Ogden at 10 PM, I had time to take a few sunset photos.  As the sun approached the western horizon, I exited I-80 at Tipton North Road (exit 158), a well-maintained gravel road that appears to service oil and gas facilities in the Wamsutter Field.Traveling north past a gas processing plant, I was struck by the number of Pronghorn Antelope in the area.  A little further up the road, I passed a small herd of elk.  Apparently, the Red Desert is home to the largest population of desert-dwelling elk in the world.  Recognizing that I didn’t have much sunlight left, I decided to follow an unmaintained dirt road to the crest of a small ridge where I thought I could find a good photo location.  A faint clearing in the sparse vegetation indicated an old camp site.  The ridge provided an overlook to a high-elevation desert basin; one that does not drain to any of the world’s oceans.  Here, the continental divide splits and wraps around both sides of what has been named the Great Divide Basin.From my overlook, I could see north past the Oregon Buttes and Killpecker Sand Dunes.  In fact, the jagged peaks of the Wind River Range, over 75 miles away, were visible just above the horizon.  While taking photos, the crisp desert air, huge skies, and complete solitude created and overwhelming sense of home.  I could not bring myself to leave.  I let my parents know I’d be delayed and popped the top on the Northstar (and a Founder’s All Day IPA).Other than the occasional chorus of howling coyotes and curious antelope, the night was completely still.  Taking photos well into the night, I woke up at sunrise and reluctantly continued my journey to Ogden, Moab, the Abajo Mountains, and Hovenweep National Monument.  I’m not sure why, but the Red Desert was the highlight of my trip.  It is a place that stays with me.  I can’t wait to go back and really explore.

#569 - Andrea KelseyMoyie, British Columbia2013 Toyota Tacoma2017 Four Wheel Camper FleetCamera Used - iPhone 6After a month and half on the road, driving across the United States from Massachusetts, we crossed the border into Canada from Idaho.  The border agent informed us that all forest roads would be closed the following day due to uncontrolled forest fires.  We took advantage of our only night allowed on forest roads and drove up a mountain road and camped above a lake.  Upon nightfall, what started as a small smolder turned into a raging fire across the lake.  We watched in shock and awe at the blaze, faintly smelling the smoke and hoping the wind's direction would stay in our favor.

The road trip starts at the Banff National Park on the Canada Day . I located the spot in front of Vermillion Lake with Google Map.  Using the iconic Rundle Mountain as the background, I wanted to present the beauty of Banff National Park in such a meaningful 150th-anniversary fireworks.  Details of the sky and mountains are not a Photoshop effect.  There is sunlight remaining on the horizon at a high latitude area even at 11pm.
