"I remember this night and all I had was pure solitude. I can't forget just staring at the night sky thinking how lucky I was to be in that place and in that moment, in front of Denali reflected on the lake right before me.

Shortly after, the Aurora Borealis did not disappoint and completed my night!

This was truly one of the best nights I had and for a second I didn't have to worry about anything. Then I remembered where I was - in the middle of nowhere and realized that any wildlife could appear, tear down my tent, and eat me while asleep."

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.

Slick Lake Playa

Clear nights complement the camping experience in the vast dry bed of Lake Playa.

Crystal Lake

The trails embedded within Uinta have several options for hiking with plenty of terrain to rest for the day or night.
