"This photo was taken on a weekend trip to Figueroa Mountain with a group of camp friends. We try to get out of town at least once a month to clear our head and get back to nature, and this was one of those trips.

Figueroa campground is also a great getaway because you can drive down the mountain and go wine tasting during the day. Wine tasting, great weather, and camping! What could be better?!

I recommend venturing to this campground in March/April when the wildflowers are blooming and the mountain is not yet crowded--we were pretty much the only people camping that weekend.

The stargazing at night is pretty spectacular too!"

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.

New Years Camping

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the New Year than at a campspot like this, high above Lauchernalp.

Eureka Sand Dunes

A “star-selfie” that was meant to be at this campspot in Death Valley National Park.
