"I made the 5-hour drive up to Caprock Canyons this weekend after the area received 13" of snow. Unfortunately, I waited a day too long and ended up catching only small patches of white, and copious amounts of slippery red mud. The gear was -- as you can imagine -- thrashed.

Totally worth it.

Great trails, amazing weather, and a fantastic Texas classic. Given that this was on such short notice, I hadn't planned on having any moonlight to work with. But at 35% full under crisp panhandle skies, it was just right. Bright enough to light your foreground, but not so bright that your stars are blown out.

Better still, as usual, there wasn't a soul around. Other than a few hikers on Saturday, the park was completely empty. Another reason to love winter camping."

Reflection Canyon

The challenging journey into Reflection Canyon tops off with unrestricted ledge tentspots deep in the Utah backcountry.

Too Tired for Tents

All night drive + soft ground = minimal camp setup. Preston and Josh got cozy with the forest as they made their campspot in Big Sur.

Central Star Gaze

Here’s a frame from Dustin’s time-lapse video as he and his buddy set out to capture the stars over the central coast of California.
