"We traveled to Death Valley for the super bloom and discovered the only open camping was backcountry. The park ranger recommended the foothills of the Panamint Mountain range, where several dirt roads led up into its canyons.

From Badwater Road, we turned on West Side Road, a gravel drive bisecting the vast salt flats. After a few miles, we turned right up Trail Canyon, a 4WD only dirt road that we only felt confident driving in a Jeep.

All this effort was worth it for the solitude of camping alone in a wide-open canyon and the endless views of the valley below when we packed up camp."

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.

Ribbons A Flame

An extraordinary moment captured as the fire paints ribbons of life on a starry night in the Cherokee National Forest.

Too Tired for Tents

All night drive + soft ground = minimal camp setup. Preston and Josh got cozy with the forest as they made their campspot in Big Sur.
