"We wanted to spend New Years in a place we would never forget. So we hiked up a snowy slope, which towered above the Lauchernalp and gave us an amazing view of the Bietschorn Mountain.
The sky was perfectly clear and we were able to see numerous stars and constellations. As the clock struck midnight, firework shows commenced all around us showering the sky with golds, reds, blues, and greens.
We spent the rest of the night camping on top of the peak, providing us an incredible start to 2014."

Sometimes, traces of civilization can become impressive scenery out in the distance from an exposed camp spot.
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.
Jamy won our campfire photo contest this past winter and he recently captured this beautiful camp spot on the La Disable River in Mont Tremblant National Park.
