In the background the replica of the Patagotitan Mayorum dinosaur to scale.  Additional information can be visited in the museum https://mef.org.ar.  This dinosaur attracted such interest in the world that it put the Mef in the international scientific showcase.  It was thus that the BBC in London proposed to the Egidio Feruglio Foundation the filming of a documentary conducted by the renowned naturalist and documentary filmmaker Sir David Attenborough, about this amazing discovery and the natural wealth of Argentine Patagonia.

The area between Thunder Bay and Nipigon is noted for its red rock cliff formations. This roadside pull out is at the eastern end of the cliffs.  Although the rocks were not particularly red in the drab light, we thought we would try for a photo opportunity while eating our sandwiches.

#107 - Alex HohmanMount Saint Helens1997 Ford F-3502002 Summerwind 911sCamera Used - iPhone 8My girlfriend and I recently purchased this camper from an older couple that was happy to see the joy that it brings us. We both are originally from the east coast and moving west made us realize how much land there is out here to explore. We thought, what better way to explore than in a 4x4 camper! After weeks of searching on Craigslist, we found the perfect camper. We bought her, and completely renovated the inside with new styling for maximum enjoyment. We live in the Mt. Hood area of Oregon and it is awesome to explore the mountains, desert, and coastal areas. Every weekend we roll out to a new stunning place and this camper setup has been extremely ideal for us. Unless people have a truck camper, they usually don’t understand what it’s like to be off the beaten path and surrounded by stunning scenery that’s just waiting to be explored. This picture is just sums up one of the beautiful places we’ve been and the culture of the truck camping family.

On this journey to visit friends and family in Idaho, we chose to drive the Lewis and Clark highway in Washington state (highway 14) instead of I-84, which is directly across the Columbia River on the Oregon side. What a nice, alternate route it was; much fewer cars and no big diesels!

#109 - Peter LewkoAmour Point Lighthouse, Labrador, Canada2019 Ford F3502019 Northern Lite 10-2 Wet BathCamera Used - Apple iPhone 12We were on day eleven of our seven week (12,000km) east coast road trip that took us to Baie-Comeau Quebec, Highway 389 north to Labrador City, the Labrador Highway (Expedition 51) to Blanc-Sablon Quebec, Newfoundland, Cape Breton Island (the Cabot Trail), Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, the Gaspe in Quebec and home. The Point Amour Lighthouse is a historic site and it is the tallest lighthouse in Atlantic Canada.  Subsequent to our tour of the lighthouse we were advised that we could overnight in their parking lot. It was a beautiful spot right on the Labrador coast of the Strait of Belle Isle. It was so windy that we had to point the truck into the wind and put down the jacks to stabilize the camper for the night. A second truck camper joined us later that evening.We experienced everything on this trip from shorts and tee shirt weather to winter jackets, toques and gloves. On day ten we camped overnight next to a snow plow in a gas station parking lot in Port Hope Simpson. We heard the snowplow leave about 4:30am and woke up that morning to snow covered roads. For those interested in doing Expedition 51, the worst part of the trip was Highway 389 in Quebec. Once you get north of the Manic 5 hydro dam it turns to gravel and it is a mix of pavement, gravel, dirt and rocks all the way to the Labrador boarder. The Labrador Highway is in good shape. Watch out for the potholes and frost heaves. When we took this trip there was only 32 kilometers of gravel road left on the route (located near Port Hope Simpson) and they were in the process of paving it. Cell phone coverage is minimal to non existent, so we traveled with a Garmin In-Reach GPS for communication purposes. Another thing to keep in mind is that most of the tourist attractions do not open up until June 1st. We were a week early and missed out on Battle Harbour, and the National Historic Site in Red Bay. We did however see a number of icebergs.

It was Oceanfront Camping at Reach Knolls. We stayed for four nights and had some practice shooting the Milky Way from the beach front. I knew I could capture the Milky Way behind our camper and was hoping I could silhouette the trees in the foreground while maintaining a good Milky Way background. I used my headlamp to paint the trees and camper while the photo was being captured. In order to get as much of the Milky Way as possible, I used my head lamp on the last second of exposure. The lens used for the photo was a wide angle Canon RF 15-35/2.8 L IS USM lens. I mounted my camera with lens on a tripod using manual settings and I took a series of photos.

A nice secluded campground on Lake Michigan fit the ticket. It was late and quite dark, but we managed to snuggle into our site. As we left the truck to get into camper we were blessed with a spectacular view of a full moon creating a silhouette of Michigan through the trees. A perfect ending to a great day.

It does have a picnic table, fire ring and modern restrooms with showers.  They are close by to walk to. We just happened to see the park on our map and the walk or hike amongst the rocks that we camped in are a hidden treasure that anyone or age would enjoy.  It was only $10 a night. There are electricity spots available at $14 per night, but the camps spots in the rocks are inexplicably amazing. Gila Cliff Dwellings are only 73 miles up the road and are free to hike up the mile to see them.

Yes, we did end up with company from the US Border Patrol.  The officer was very amicable. He told us a little bit about the area and his job.  All in all, it was a very good experience.

When we left our campground at Mt.Kidd there was a lot of snow on the ground towards Highwood Pass. We had stopped here for fuel and have a bite to eat.  The lady at the gas station said that they got snow overnight. The plows had came to clear the highway and parking lot. As you can see, the snow piled up by the plow.  It was a nice crisp day and drive. We saw a grizzly eating grass under all that snow.

Many of our destinations and camping spots were planned but we did leave room for spontaneous detours including this day trip to Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area. After visiting so many of the popular national park destinations, Bighorn Canyon was a refreshing change of pace. As soon as we entered the quiet road leading to the canyon, we immediately spotted a number of bighorn sheep. Arriving at the parking lot, we were one of about three vehicles total which meant we could view the glorious Devil's canyon overlook in peaceful solitude. Directly behind us, our truck camper is parked against the backdrop of the East Pryor Mountain providing this private and stunning landscape. Important lesson here is to look for the road less traveled during any and all travels, some of the lesser known canyons and parks can provide absolutely beautiful and peaceful settings.

Traveling together with our brother and sister-in-law in their own rig, we camped at a combination of state campgrounds, private campgrounds and Harvest Hosts. When traveling through Cody, Wyoming, we managed to score big with this river side camping site with a view despite our lack of reservation. We were pleased to learn that this Buffalo Bill State Park location offered campgrounds with ample space and beautiful views. It's easy to see from this photo that we had plenty of buffer between campsites which makes for a peaceful night's rest. While our visit to Cody was brief, it was also very memorable due to tours of the Buffalo Bill Dam as well as the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, a museum dedicated to the American West. Don't let the possibility of crowds keep you from visiting this iconic western town, it's definitely worth the visit.

Ample parking was made available adjacent to their iconic red barn which made for a very scenic picture. We enjoyed wine tasting, plant based dinner options, shopping in their small boutique and most importantly their welcoming and inclusive atmosphere. After dinner, chef and host Greg Cook paid a visit to the campers as he tended his garden close to the parking area, wine glass in his hand. Now that's our kind of gardening. Great food and drink, new fast friends and a beautiful sunset made this an ideal overnight stay for us and our family traveling companions.

How is that possible? So we drove on Route 412 through the towns of Boise City, Guymon and Ft. Supply and other smaller settlements. We found them to be charming and quaint, full of historical buildings, general stores, train depots, etc. The landscape is surely very flat and the road is mighty straight.

This was one of the few blue bird clear days while there. We were held up along side the road as mountain goats were all over the roadway when I shot this. This was our last day in the area before heading home to California. The shot is looking south towards the Columbia Icefield area, with Mount Athabasca directly in the background.

It is all national seashore and camping is permitted along most of the island. There is one trail that runs the length of the island and many miles of beach to drive on.The shelling, fishing and family time were tremendous. We will return this fall for more fishing, shelling and family time.

After a three years of working and upgrading our rig, we finally made it to full-time truck camper life.  Our very first camping location was at Alabama Hills, California. We arrived after dark, so we didn't know truly how beautiful of an area we were in. We woke up to these stunning mountain views!  We were very grateful that this was our first stop to sleep!

They knew that I had been on the White Rim Trail several times, so they asked me to guide them. The White Rim Trail to me is the apex for a truck camper to do and you never really know if you are going to make all the way around with rigs of our size. In the distance is Candlestick Tower. Murphy's is about three-quarters around on the trail going and a good place for a turn around if you have to.

#167 - Dana HarrisonHenry Mountains, Utah2009 Ford F250 2021 Four Wheel Camper HawkCamera Used - iPhone 11We were at the end of a 206-mile four day trip doing Overland Trail Guide's Capital Reef Backcountry Trail. This was the final campsite, and was several miles up the alternative route into the Henry Mountains. We gave ourselves a half hour off the main route to find a campsite as it was getting late and dusk was coming. The road up into the Henry Mountains was near the limit of what our truck and camper combo could handle. There was lots of four low travel over rocks, washes, and mud. We went all the way up the road until this spot appeared.  There were no campsites or even flat spots to pull off. At exactly half an hour, a tiny pull off on the right appeared, and we did a five-point turnaround to back into it. We then were hammered with an intense rainstorm, but enjoyed dinner and cards inside the camper. We woke up the next day to a clean truck, and a valley shrouded in clouds.  I thought it was a pretty cool shot!

We have been living here for 34 years; my husband from Norway and myself from the Island. As professionals, we have been working and sailing around the world for several years. Certainly, we appreciate simple life, nature and its majestic scenery. After two years of research during the Covid pandemic, we purchased our truck and camper in October 2021 at Canadream near Montréal, Quebec. We drove to Ottawa then back home exploring New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.  Our next adventure and destination will most probably be the United States, enjoying camper life, expeditions, warm weather and millions of twinkling stars.

#172 - Jack SmithOuray, Colorado2021 Toyota Tacoma2021 Phoenix Pop-Up CamperCamera Used - Nikon D5About 14 months after ordering my custom built camper from Phoenix Pop-Up Camper/Coyote RV in Colorado I received an email that my camper was ready to be installed and could be picked up early in December of 2021. I left my home in Texas on December 1st and spent the night in Oklahoma. On December 2nd I drove to Denver, Colorado to pick up my camper.From Denver I drove to to Rocky Mountain National Park to spend four nights getting used to my new camper. On December 6th I drove to Ouray, Colorado to spend five nights at the KOA in order to have electricity to use my heater and charge camera batteries. Ouray had not had much snow before I arrived; however, did get several inches during my stay there. If I remember correctly, the temperature was four degrees on the morning I was to drive to New Mexico over the Million Dollar Highway (Co 550). I stopped for some lunch in Silverton because of a two-hour delay due to an overturned eighteen-wheeler loaded with new vehicles.After the accident was cleared from the road, I drove on to Albuquerque, New Mexico (my birthplace). I spent one night in Ft. Stockton, Texas before driving home to San Antonio.I took the submitted picture on the morning of December 10th with snow falling covering my camper. The two very happy campers in the picture are me and my travel buddy, Benjamin Bear.I highly recommend Ouray, Colorado as a great destination and suggest you visit Cascade Falls and hike the Perimeter Trail. Also, Ouray and surrounding area in late September offers spectacular fall color and sometimes snow for great photography opportunities.

We had just crossed the continental device on US Highway 26, not far to the east of Yellowstone/Tetons, and thought this would be a great area to camp. A quick look at the map clued us in that this Forest Service campground four to five miles off the highway would be a nice option. By the time we got to the campground the best we could say was, “WOW!” We had seen a lot of great territory along our trip. This was one step above. We definitely will be staying here again.
