"We showed up at the hot springs at midnight, soaked in the warm water and gazed at the clear night sky - the stars were unfathomable.

This is a photo of the morning, after one of the more chilly nights I've experienced. We awoke to a frosty tent and a sunrise I'll never forget."

Camping on the Kern River

The Kern River flows through the Sierra Nevada mountains and affords a wealth of camping opportunities ranging from developed campgrounds to backcountry dispersed camp spots.

Yellow Aster Sunset

It’s advised to hike within Yellow Aster Butte for unlimited breathtaking views of the Mt. Baker Wilderness.

North of the Sun

“It was 10pm when I took this photo of our campspot for the night. The amount of sun makes it seem like mid-day, but that’s normal when you’re camping ‘North of the Sun’.”
