It was a beautiful spring in Moab, Utah, with all the snow and rain we’d had. I really liked the contrast of the tall grass with the red rocks in the background.

We wanted to access a slot canyon we had heard about, so we ignored the signs warning of flash floods and an impassable road if it rained. We thought sunny thoughts the whole way!

Camera Used – iPhone

We spent a few nights camping on the Owyhee River Road in Oregon during the Spring this year. We were excited about seeing some of the areas we had seen before in late fall. There was so much color this Spring. This camp was one of our favorites because we got to spend hours watching a beautiful golden eagle across the river.

2017 Adventurer 80RB
Camera Used – Galaxy S9

My wife and I just moved to North Carolina. We went on a weekend trip to the shore and found Topsail Beach, so we stayed the night there. The photo was a sunrise shot; a spur of the moment type of thing.

Rainer Mueller

Camera Used – Fujifilm XT-H1

I’ve always wanted to get a formal shot of my Mobile Man Cave. The scenery at the Mountain River RV Park in Idanho, Oregon gave me the impetus to pull it off.

Camera Used – iPhone 8 Plus

I traveled by this waterfall in the winter while I was snowmobiling. I wanted to get a picture of it in the spring. On our week vacation camping around Gaspé we made a stop to take a photo along our journey. It is on the north shore of Highway 132 alongside the gulf of the St Lawrence. Beautiful peaceful travels.

Gary Usher

2017 Ford F350

I spent nine days at Cape Lookout National Seashore. Even during Memorial weekend, there was little traffic.

Little Colorado River near Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona
2007 Ram 2500
2018 Northstar 650SC
Camera Used – Samsung Galaxy S7

We wanted to see the Petrified Forest but we are not fans of civilized campgrounds. We took off on dirt roads to find a nice primitive spot outside the park. This location on the banks of the Little Colorado River was perfect. We had it to ourselves and that evening’s sunset was amazing.
