Default Who has a better camp site than me?

Had to go around a few downed trees to reach Chimney Peak campground at 5600 elevation in mid-March. Higher campgrounds that we usually visit were snowed in. Thought we were the only ones in the campground until a young German hiked into camp via the Pacific Crest Trail.

Might not be the most picturesque camp site, but totally meets the intended purpose and requirements of the little one. Fort Stevens State Park, Near to Astoria Oregon (It is wall to wall with some 500 sites). Had some wonderful skies on the way home in the farmlands between coastal range and outlying hamlets of Portland / Beaverton Oregon.

Sometimes the 4WD doesnt cut it. You really need 2FD to get to the best camp sites. Bouncing around Mineral King...







Columbine Lake was still mostly frozen. Witnessed a huge piece of ice calve off the bowl below Sawtooth and thunder down to the lake. Completely spectacular

All alone (except a lot of mosquitoes) at a hidden lake in the world heritage of "High Coast" in Sweden. Only room for one small RV. Parked 2 meters from the shore

Hatcher Pass, AK. That white stuff above the horizon is white mountains, not cloud.

Very own hot spring. Utah. Not another human in sight the whole day we were there.

I'm guessing you're up at one of the little lakes above the road/pass...
Back in 75 I flew my hang glider from the other side of the lake and down into the Willow Creek side at the bottom....
On the Palmer side of the Pass they've wanted to build a Ski Resort for years...
State Parks has done a great job with the Mine as a historical site...
