#001 - Bob HamptonBig Cypress Swamp, Florida2013 Ford F3502010 Arctic Fox 990Camera Used - DJI Mavic Pro 2This photo was taken during my February 2019 tour of southern Florida parks and preserves.  My goal was to capture unique images featuring the vast landscapes of the Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, and nearby state parks.  My usual photographic gear is a Canon7D, however I added a DJI Mavic drone prior to this trip.  I have had a great time capturing unique views and using the drone to scout ahead traveling back-country trails.

As you can see, it rained in the distance and there was a cool rainbow.  These are the pots of gold that we get to be a part of when truck camping.

#008 - Joan ThompsonEcho Amphitheater on Highway 84 in north central New Mexico2011 GMC Sierra 3500HD2013 Lance 1191Camera Used - Samsung S7 EdgeThroughout our seven weeks of travels this winter - a loop from Wisconsin to Southern California and back - we kept getting lucky with campgrounds.  Even in Arizona during spring break, we would pull in to forest service campgrounds and get the last available site.We ended up at this spot in northern New Mexico on the way home in early April.  This was the best of all of them because we got the last site, which was the best one.  And the fee for the site was just one dollar!I knew the morning sun would light up the red cliffs behind us when it first came up.  So I was out there, bundled up in my down coat, to catch it.  The day concluded at Ouray, Colorado after a drive through Durango and over Molas Pass. My husband had been wanting to take me on that road ever since we've been married (37+ years) and now I know why!  When I look at this photo, I am amazed at the contrasts - from the red rock canyons at first light to the avalanche chutes along the winding mountain road in the afternoon.  It was all in one day!

#009 - Rainer MuellerRed Rock Canyon State Park, California2015 Ford F-3502017 Host MammothCamera Used - iPhone 7 PlusI have lived and camped in California for almost 50 years.  I had driven right past this state park a couple of times, but never pulled in because of it being either too hot or too crowded.  But this time was special because it was late summer, and my birthday. When my wife and I arrived we discovered that we were the only campers in the park!  We had our pick of spots and. of course, I picked the best one.  Setting up camp with a truck camper is mighty easy when you don't have to put down all the jacks.  Within minutes I grabbed an adult libation, fired up a drone and got some great scenery videos.  The next morning I grabbed my iPhone and captured a few shots of the rig before we headed to the Kern River for more adventures.  I'm just a happy camper.

#012 - Douglas DonatoN. Fork of Robbers Roost Canyon, Utah2007 Toyota Tacoma2011 Four Wheel FleetCamera Used - LG V40 ThinQ phoneWe drove from home in Lakewood, Colorado (April 2019) to the Green River, Utah.  Then we went south on Highway 24 to just past the Goblin Valley turnoff.  Then we went east down a dirt road and split south onto a minor four wheel drive road to this beautiful spot at the top of the North Fork of Robber's Roost Canyon.The picture was taken at sunset on the first night.  We were all alone the four days we were there.  We did a technical canyoneering trip down the canyon the first day.  The second day we took a 3-day backpack to the Dirty Devil River and the main Robbers Roost Canyon before returning to camp and moving on to Red Rocks Nevada outside of Las Vegas for five days of rock climbing.

#013 - Bill CollinsFish Lake, Sinlahekin Wildlife Area, Washington State2009 Ford F2502015 Adventurer 86FBCamera Used - Nikon D600 with a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4.0 lensI was on my way back from Yellowstone National Park in April of this year.  I am from British Columbia.  When I traveled through Montana and the upper part of Idaho, I wanted to visit the Sinlahekin Wildlife Area because I am very interested in bird and wildlife photography.  However, I got to the spot too late for photography.  So I had to find a place to camp.I drove by this spot at Fish Lake. There was a small campground maintained by the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.  A short drive down a gravel road and I was parked all by myself.   I have done star and Milky Way photography in the past, but I decided to include my Adventurer camper in the shot.  ISO 6400 with my Nikkor 16-35mm lens wide open at f4.0 for 30 seconds usually works, and it did on this occasion as well.

This was our second trip with this truck.  What a joy to drive.  We are 2000 pounds under weight.  No airbags, no trussed hitch, no Rancho 9000s.  Plenty of torque, but more important, lots of stopping power.

#031 - Heather FerrieSierra Nevada Mountains, California2015 Chevrolet Silverado1995 Shadow CruiserCamera Used - PhoneWe were camping in the one of our favorite locations in the Sierra Nevada Mountains with a great view into the White Mountains on the border of California and Nevada.  Suddenly, a thunderstorm rolled in with violent winds.  We hustled to get the camper popped down, which is not an easy task when it's windy!  Then we huddled inside to ride out the storm.  Suddenly, the winds, rain and thunder stopped.  We looked out of the camper’s window to discover the most beautiful sight - a double full rainbow panorama in front of the White Mountains.  We realized the lesson here: you have to ride out the storm if you want the rainbow!
