"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."

Severe Highlands

Jason and his wife had to do some long distance hiking in cold windy conditions to get to this lunar-esque landscape on the Laugavegur Trail.

Swimming In The Stars

Tough to find where the ocean ends and the stars begin at this campspot in Polihale State Park.

Among The Pines

Just a hundred feet from the ocean and surrounded by the unseemingly dense rainforest of Alaska, this is a campspot you’d not soon forget.
