"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!"
