"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."

Lower Twin Lake

The “lesser” known Lower Twin Lake is a seemingly private camping experience along the trail to the centerpiece of Lassen Volcanic National Park.

Monument Valley Sunrise

It’s totally worth losing some sleep to take in the golden hour of a Monument Valley sunrise.

Rainier Road

Mt. Rainer Wilderness is a solid spot to spend the first night camping in a new VW Westfalia.
