"This photo was taken on New Year's Eve 2010 while on a three night snowshoe trip in Northern Saskatchewan.  Seven of us pulled our gear on sleds across MacKay Lake on a very cold, windy day.  The rest of the weekend was clear, cold and calm with temperatures dipping down to -32 C(-25 F) at night.

The burning vertical log in the center of the photo is a jack pine candle that was given to us by some dog sledders in the area. It provided some much needed warmth and light on this cold New Year's Eve.  

The boreal forest is amazing any time of year but in the winter it becomes a wonderland!"

Uttakleiv Beach

Greens, blues, and clear night skies – this is what night camping looks like on Uttakleiv Beach in Vestvågøy, Norway.

Whiskey In The Wind

Put an end to the workweek with a glass of whiskey and some great camping in the Wind River Mountain Range.

Lights, Camera, Action

Sometimes, traces of civilization can become impressive scenery out in the distance from an exposed camp spot.
