My husband was with me for the first two weeks.  We were leaving Moab and took the scenic road rather than the interstate.  This was the first stop along the way.  My road trip was a dream come true for me.  My plan was to visit the twelve remaining states to complete all fifty in my lifetime, which I completed.

We decided to see the American southwest and the wonderful landscapes of New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah.  I was stunned by the beauty of the pink cliffs, the wideness, wilderness and the impression of being so small and out of time.  We stopped to hear the silence and enjoy the moment.

The landscape was very interesting, and not just a big sandbar.  We climbed any small mountains (big hills) that had a path.  It was a great place for a relaxing holiday.

We always stop and just stare at the mountains for a half hour.  You just can't help it!  Two years in a row we have arrived to find the air perfect, the sky blue, and the turn out deserted.  Maybe one of these years, we will arrive early in the morning to watch the sunrise.

#109 - Sarah LyonDixie National Forest, Utah1997 Ford F2502004 Lance 1030Camera Used - iPhone 6s PlusAfter a long day of visiting Bryce and Zion National Parks, we were looking for somewhere to spend the night. When road tripping, we never make reservations, preferring to play it by ear and follow our own interests and whims.  We ended up in the mountains of the Dixie National Forest and pulled into a small roadside campground.  We were the only people there for several hours until an RV with a family from Germany arrived.  We all got to know each other around a campfire that night and enjoyed some beers, laughs and the camaraderie of fellow travelers.  It was a wonderful night.  The kind you can only experience while camping.

We could not resist in trying to capture the moment and of course my focus was the Eagle Cap for an entry for the calendar contest.

It took quite awhile to get to this spot since it was pitch black when we left the hard road. The campgrounds at Antelope State Park are not well developed or anywhere near hard pavement.  We were lucky to find this spot in the darkness.  We had no idea we would wake up to a view of The Great Salt Lake.  What a nice surprise!

We stayed in county, state, and several national park campgrounds on our month long journey, with an occasional motel room thrown in for the long hot showers, especially after dry camping!  The truck camper allowed us to go so many more places than a big RV, and is way more fun than motels.

I had canceled the three day trip I had planned, due to a dismal forecast.  After sitting around the house for a day being miserable, I threw everything in the camper and spent a pleasant day and a half exploring forest service roads.  This picture was taken at a dispersed site after a half-hour long thunder storm rolled through before sunset.  That, and a quick midmorning shower just as I finished breaking camp the next day, was the only rain of the trip!

We just got through Brookins Oregon on Highway 101 before they started evacuation in that area because of a major fire. Without question, camping or boondocking like this is why we have a truck camper.

As you can see in the photo this was a successful trip, hunting wise.  The rain was relentless.  We had a constant rain the entire trip.  It was sure nice to have a dry and warm camper to come back to at the end of the day. T his trip was an exploration for us as well since we rarely go up that far north.  Despite the weather this was a great weekend road trip.  What a great place to live...this land called Alaska.

#156 - Daryl HartleyBuffalo Gap National Grasslands, South Dakota2016 Ford F3502017 Lance 975Camera Used - Samsung Galaxy S8We were on a weekend restaurant tour.  We started in Lincoln, Nebraska and spent the first night in Thedford, Nebraska at a city park with free water and electricity.  While in Thedford I posted my weekend plans on social media, indicating we were going to camp the next night in Badlands National Park at a boondocking campground.  A camper from Pennsylvania told me he was there a couple of weeks ago, but stayed just outside the park on the northwest side on a cliff that overlooked the Badlands.  He stayed with a couple other campers for free.The next day we ate lunch in Rapid City at Firehouse Brewing Company and then drove to the Badlands to set up camp.  I missed my intended turn, but could still get to the campground through the main entrance, however it was going to cost $20 or $25 to enter the park.  My intentions for the trip were free camping since we were spending big money on food. However, about half a mile north of the park entrance, I noticed several campers parked up on a ridge about a quarter mile east of the highway, which was the location the guy from Pennsylvania told me about.  We turned around, drove to the site, and set up camp for the second night on the ridge overlooking the Badlands, which is where the picture was taken.We had bighorn sheep come right up to the camper and then bed down for the night on the ridge just below us . The picture is the sunrise over the Badlands the following morning.  We left later that morning, drove to Devils Tower Wyoming, and then onto Hartville, Wyoming to eat at Miners and Stockmen's Steakhouse and Spirits.  We spent the third night just south of Hartville at Grayrocks Reservoir where we once again boondocked for the night.  The next day we drove back to Lincoln.  The total mileage for the trip (to visit two restaurants) was 1563 miles.

This park is unlike any other because of its unique terrain - all glistening white sand.  As you drive in you pass hill after hill of rolling bright white sand dunes that stretch as far as the eye can see.  There are numerous turn-offs offering you a chance to stop and relax to have lunch, or take out your sled and slide down the hills.  This is a must see for any traveler going through New Mexico!

I always stay at Sea and Sand RV Park in site #103, which is the absolute premier location in the park for a truck camper.  As you see in my photo, the ocean view is unobstructed and always breathtaking, especially on a warm sunny day. August is the perfect month to observe the gray whales that come into the bays and coves to feed and play in the shallow waters.  It's quite a sight if you're fortunate to be there!

This is the location of the first Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable that connected North America and Europe.  The cable was laid across the Atlantic in 1860s and Hearts Desire became a telegraph station for the North American side of the cable.We got to the museum about 4:50 and it was about to close, so we decided we'd stay in the area overnight.  We were driving out of town and we looked over and there in the distance was the lighthouse.  We followed a road and found it.We parked for the night and it was really windy.  I pulled the slide in that night to keep the topper from blowing away. The next morning was still with a misty rain and fog.  The museum opened at 9:30am.  I thought I'd snap a picture for the calendar.  I turned the truck around to get a picture of its good side, but that's another story.  Needless to say, check your lug nuts!

Having lived in Southern Utah for a few years, we knew that there was no shortage of boondocking options, but had our heart set on Navajo Lake.We arrived in the midst of a hailstorm that had the landscape blanketing in white.  That evolved into an epic thunderstorm for the rest of the night!  Our trusty Six-Pac kept me, my wife, our two kids, our 80-pound golden retriever, and a four week old puppy safe and snug as the thunder rolled on by.

The timing was fantastic and we got some absolutely epic powder conditions followed by clear skies with great snow conditions. The camper served as a great basecamp to warm up and hang out after a few runs, and we even camped at the park one night (for free).  I snapped this picture at the end of a particularly good day.

#173 - Laughlin DrakeSajama National Park, Bolivia1994 Dodge Ram1986 Alaskan Camper 10-foot caboverCamera Used - Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSAfter spending a month in Peru and the previous eight traveling there from the United States, we pulled into La Paz, Bolivia to visit a mechanic to replace our brakes that were toast after 20,000 miles of abuse.  We were told it would be a week before work would begin so we took off to Sajama National Park to continue exploring while we waited for the time to pass.Sajama National Park holds the Sajama Volcano which is the tallest peak in the high altitude country at over 20,000 feet in elevation.  We couldn't drive more than a few miles without stopping for photo shoots, most of which included our truck and camper.  Each time we stopped, our jaws dropped as we stared at this incredible mountain.  The glaciers and snow, rocks and crevices changed with each turn of the wheel and we admired its beauty with each stop.  Finally, after eight months of hot weather, our Alaskan Camper felt at home at the cold, high altitudes of Bolivia.  This was another sign that we were right where we should be.

It ended up being a nine-hour drive, but we found a nice secluded camp spot, fed and watered the kids, fired up the Weber and had a nice dinner of grilled salmon and asparagus with a cold bottle of wine.  The next morning we had a leisurely breakfast, packed up and headed towards Bullfrog stopping along the way snapping pictures and admiring the beauty around us.  This shot was done to show the enormity of the red walls we were surrounded by.

#187 - Audra AbbottMavillette Beach Provincial Park, Nova Scotia, Canada2008 Ford F3502006 Lance 1181Camera Used - Olympus ToughMavillette Beach Provincial Park is located in the Yarmouth and Acadian Shores region in Nova Scotia, Canada.  It is a 1.5 kilometer long sandy beach backed by fragile marram grass-covered dunes protected by boardwalks.  Low tide exposes sand flats; then the hot sand warms the water.  There is also a spot for dry camping for $20.  We went on a recommendation by a friend.  The beach and views did not disappoint.  This stop was part of our one month long Staycation of traveling the shoreline of our own beautiful province and staying at several provincial campgrounds along the way.  Our provincial parks can sometimes be magical!

After lunch we back tracked to the wilderness trail and hiked along the Bay of Fundy coast to the waterfall.  There are campsites nearby, but we prefer the privacy of the Valleyview Campground, that’s 40 kilometers east.

This was on our last day of climbing in the area, so we drove north with hopes of finding a good beach to camp nearby, before crossing into Canada the next day.  What we discovered was Douglas Hill OHV area that allowed up to fourteen days of free camping on a beautiful peninsula, fully equipped with a pit toilet and primitive boat launch.  We found a perfect grassy campsite at the very tip of the peninsula, and enjoyed the sunny afternoon by the lake, followed by a magical sunset.

#199 - Scott and Johanna CameronKane Springs Rd, Moab, Utah2003 Ford F3502000 Lance Lite 915Camera Used - Panasonic Lumix LX100We arrived in Moab expecting to find a lot of free camping due to the abundance of open use land.  For our first night in town, we drove down to one of the most famous off-road areas nearby; Kane Springs Road.  The paved road follows the Colorado River for a little ways before forking south, following Kane Springs Creek.  At this point, the road becomes dirt and many of the tall sandstone walls lining the canyon are popular rock climbs.  Dozens of Jeeps and other 4x4 vehicles use this rough road to access some of Moab's gnarliest terrain.  Many people take their mountain bikes down there to access the world famous Amasa back trail.We had imagined that much of that road, which is on BLM land, would provide numerous options for free camping.  But the popularity of Moab comes at a cost.  All the historically free pull-outs/campsites have now been turned into official BLM campgrounds with a fee.  We drove to the very end of the road, and finally found a small pull-out to spend the night.  Any further than that and we would have needed higher clearance and a much more agile vehicle.  In the end it was a lot of fun driving through the canyon and across Kane Springs Creek in this boondocking adventure.  That's Moab for you!

#200 - Scott and Johanna CameronDevils Tower, Wyoming2003 Ford F3502000 Lance Lite 915Camera Used - Panasonic Lumix LX100This picture is very dear to us.  On our cross-country road trip, Devils Tower had been a major climbing objective since day one.  We managed to contain our excitemen and stress for the first few months, but when we drove to the tower last August, and we saw it from the hills, miles away, it hit us.  We were about to climb to the top of that huge tower raising out of the plains of eastern Wyoming.As we arrived, we drove straight to the visitor center to inquire about the current rock climbing closures on the tower (due to falcon nesting).  The route we had planned to climb was closed, so we had to decide on a different way to achieve the summit the next day.  We drove to the overlook, took some pictures with the truck and the tower, and set up camp for the night. Neither of us slept very well and we woke up before sunrise to get an early start in hopes of avoiding afternoon thunderstorms.  We successfully made it to the top of Devils Tower, and it is definitely one of our biggest accomplishments of the trip.
