Here it is, the annual review of places I camped in 2015 – as seen from the Casita. The majority of these photos were taken from the inside looking out or barring that, from as close to Cas as possible. There’s been so much to write about this year that it’s a bit late, but better late than never, right? I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as much as I did putting it together, I stayed at a lot of neat places in 2015. For “home” views from previous years, click here.
I rang in the new year in Los Angeles with my best friend Julie who took a six month sabbatical from her career to travel with me in the RV. We moochdocked in her Aunt’s driveway (no pictures to preserve her privacy) then started heading east.
Julie’s cat Chance waiting for breakfast at Joshua Tree National Park, CA on 1/8. We were at Indian Cove campground, can see the rock formations through the window.
Blue Mesa at Petrified Forest National Park, AZ. Slept just outside the park the night of 1/10 where it rained hard, we were lucky it didn’t snow given the time of year and elevation, there was some snow on the ground.
Sunrise over Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, TX on 3/28, this is where Julie and I volunteered the first three months of the year. Not normally up for sunrise, took this photo from bed out the back window.
A wet stay at Bennett Spring State Park, MO on 4/3. Missed the tornadoes but the spring was so flooded we couldn’t get to many of the trails and the campfire that night petered out quick due to soggy wood.
Lunch in St. Louis, MO visiting the City Museum on 4/6. It’s like a playground for all ages.
This is a view from my childhood home in WI. Dropped Julie back off at her home then parked Cas in my parent’s driveway for a visit and this black bear came up to the house looking for food on 4/13.
A truck stop in ND on 5/6, on the way to Yellowstone. May look dreary, but as somewhere I’d never been before it was still exciting. 🙂
Sunset at my employee site in Yellowstone National Park, WY on 8/21. Too many trees to see much but when the wind blew they whispered and it was great. I work-camped here from May to the end of September.
My last afternoon at Caprock Canyons State Park, TX on 10/5. Beautiful place, not crowded, free range bison.
Lake Mineral Wells State Park, TX on a very hot and muggy day, 10/10. That woods sure is inviting though.
Another sunrise seen from bed on 12/10. This one is at Boyd RV Park in TX, where I stayed while working at Amazon from October to December.
Lake Tawakoni State Park, TX on Christmas Eve. This wasn’t suppose to be a waterfront site but TX had a record breaking year for rain, the lake was flooding the forest.
A rare “aerial” shot of Cas taken at Little House Customs in Yantis, TX on 12/29. Spent the night at the shop to get some work done before heading out to Arizona for the next adventure!
