#052 - Matt Breiter Utah2021 Ram 35002021 Palomino HS-2910Camera Used - Nikon D850We woke up around 1am to shoot a time lapse video of the Milky Way rising over our truck camper. We planned this shot and camped out in the middle of nowhere in Utah and waited for a clear night to shoot it. It's a long exposure to capture all of the details of the Milky Way and the details of the truck and camper as well.

#053 - Sarah TrybulaKings Canyon National Park, California2020 Ram 35002021 Palomino HS-2910Camera Used - Nikon D850Matt and I went out to hike a seven-mile trail in Kings Canyon National Park. After we finished the hike we took the skinny one lane road away from the trailhead. We were surrounded by giant Sequoia trees on each side of us. We stopped the truck since nobody else was in the area and photographed it to show the scale of the trees around it.

#096 - Jason YuMammoth Lakes, California2020 Ram 3500 2015 Eagle Cap 850Camera Used - iPhone 11 Pro MaxThe photo was taken in Mammoth Lakes, California. It is a local mountain that my wife and I snowboard pretty regularly. We actually camped at a campground just because the owner plowed the snow throughout the day. It was the biggest snow fall of the season, so we could not miss out! The photo was taken on the first night of the storm.  The storm lasted for about 2-3 days. It was our first experience in such a big storm, and it was a great way to test out how the camper does in very cold weather and also how handles.

These are user maintained camp sites, often free of charge, usually with a picnic table and fire ring but without amenities such as power, water, or waste disposal.  This particular site along the shore of Lake Koocanusa (near the border of BC and Montana) is even more rustic (no amenities at all) and is classified as an

We decided to venture off the highway and explore Alder Gulch which was the location of the Gold Rush itself.  Today it can only be traveled via 4x4 truck over 20 miles into the Montana Wilderness.

#160 - Terrill GrahamFishlake National Forest, Utah2019 Toyota Tundra2016 Four Wheel Camper Swift ShellCamera Used - PhoneSome may say that I’m the quiet one, the one who thinks before he speaks, the one who avoids long deep conversations and oftentimes the one who likes being alone. These people are 100% correct. I love nothing more than being out in nature with room and time to think. It is during times like these that I feel the strongest connection with myself and the world. This photo of me watching the sunset in Fishlake National Forest atop a mountain is the perfect pictorial representation of who I am. Just a silhouette off in the distance, looking and thinking.

#197 - Court LeveHurricane, Utah with Zion National Park in the background2014 GMC 35002014 Arctic Fox 990Camera Used - Nikon Z6I went on a solo 2 month bike trip in the height of Covid. I needed to get away from it all. The trip is one I will never forget. It was just me and the dog. At times, I'd go days without even seeing another person.  It was wonderful. The trip turned into a major bike mission. I rode 56 out of 60 days, covered 1,200+ miles and over 120,000 vertical feet. It will be hard to duplicate the experience.

#384 - Jonathan WilliamsKananaskis Provincial Park, Alberta2014 Ford F-5502021 Arctic Fox 1150Camera Used - Nikon Z7My fiancé and I just finished our 3rd iteration of our truck camper set up.  After a spring and summer that was turned upside down due to myself needing surgery, our plans were pushed almost 6 months.  Two months after my surgery I was given the green light to travel short distance and this allowed us to finally get started with our trip! We took a one month trip to work out all the kinks with our custom flat deck and solar system, which there were many! We spent the majority of our time in the Kananaskis and Canmore area to keep travel to a minimum and really enjoy the area as it is one of the most beautiful in Canada. We are now moving to full time living for the winter!

#435 - Derek HansenTurnagain Arm, Alaska2002 Ford F3502004 Lance 1010Camera Used - Nikon D7200The Seward Highway from Anchorage to Seward has some incredible scenery, especially along Turnagain Arm. It is not uncommon to see eagles, moose, Dall sheep, and beluga whales, along with the occasional bore tide sweeping up the Arm with some hardy souls surfing it. I especially enjoy hiking the many trails along the Arm on autumn evenings, when the setting sun makes the fall foliage glow. I parked at a random pullout along the highway on once such evening to look for a geocache and decided to climb the cliff across the road for this sunset shot with my camper rig.
