"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."

Camping Among The Grand

The views of Grand Teton from Curtis Canyon is one of the reasons Wyoming is a hotspot for camping.
