CAMP SPOT

Lagoon Grove

Big Lagoon, CA

"The day had finally come. Our roadtrip began at 6am as we set off for Northern California and various spots around Oregon. 

I had grown up in Rhode Island and moved to the SF-Bay Area after my undergraduate degree in Colorado. Having never explored the PNW, I felt like a trip was long overdue to cure a case of wanderlust.

This picture was taken on the first day of our trip after setting up on a forested waterfront of a beautiful lagoon in Humboldt County. It was important that every camp site and location that time was spent in was epic from beginning to end. Mediocre is nothing to settle for - this site brought the goods.

We had a perfect west coast sunset coming down in front of us, while the infamous and beautiful forests of Humboldt stood behind the site. It was the best of both worlds and great way to wind down a day of driving, searching for elk and walking in the sand.

Couldn't have had a better start to a roadtrip that was centered around the natural beauty of Upper Left, USA."

Denali Lights

Camping out under the Aurora Borealis up in Denali will always be one of those “holy shi*t” moments we’re all looking for in the outdoors.

Happy Campers

Darren Pearson is a multi-talented artist, and one of those talents is in light-writing. One of his latest creations was made while camping out in Yosemite National Park. This was a 450 second exposure with each character taking between 1-2 minutes to illustrate.
