This is a stunning corner on the west of Ireland and an unusually calm day in January. We overnighted on the island beside the sea. You can only get off at low tide and there’s a wonderful feeling of isolation.

This is the iconic El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. It was taken on the way out of park as we were evacuated due to an impending storm on April 6, 2018. Our family tradition is to stop for a photo from this meadow.

This was our maiden voyage after picking up our camper from the factory in Iowa. This campground had no one and was extremely quiet! Our first trip was 4,000 miles and included our two big dogs.

This picture was taken on Sunday, May 27, 2018. A storm was approaching and several truck campers converged on the Bullpen. We were on the OSV (Over Sand Vehicle) Zone at Assateague to get the safety of the dune instead of being at the water’s edge. Our truck camper is the one on the foreground. It was neat to see the line of truck campers huddled together. There were nearly forty campers in the row all together.

We were planning on heading to Mills Canyon, New Mexico when we saw a storm on the horizon. Checking the forecast we decided to divert south of the storm to Santa Rosa, New Mexico. We ate dinner in town while the storm moved through. We arrived at the pictured location less than thirty minutes after the storm had moved on. The combination of being near sundown and the storm made the picture memorable.
