"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."

A little bit of research went a long way in helping secure this campspot at a rock climbers paradise in the Alabama Hills.
This impressive shot was taken at Col de Tourmalet and provides plenty of inspiration to explore the camping opportunities in Europe.
If you don’t mind the wintry wind chills, you’re pretty much guaranteed a campspot far away from any traffic and noise as you’re halfway up to the summit of Mt. Shasta.
