I started a tradition a while back of taking pictures through Cas’ windows at the various places I camped to show what my home and office views are like. Up through 2015, these pictures totaled no more than maybe 12 a year, because much of my year was spent parked for months at a time at various work-camping gigs.
Last year I boondocked a lot and I ended up with over 30 photos, so I split the pictures into two parts. Part 1 can be found here, you’ll want to look at that first if you haven’t already – we left off early in June.
A wildfire springs up overnight near my camp at Mono Lake on the 24th, surprising the heck out of me and disrupting travel plans with the closure of 395.
One of the most surreal skies I’ve ever witnessed: Hayspur Hatchery in Idaho on June 29th from my rear window. Color, saturation, and brightness have not been touched in this photo!
Camping along a stream in the Sawtooth mountains on a foggy morning in early July. It was remarkably cold here even in the middle of summer. The morning of my sunrise photoshoot in the next valley over it was 28 degrees out.
A cow moose visits my camp in Island Park, ID on July 29th, lounging in the grass nearby for a half-hour or so. What an experience!
My fantastic (and free) view of the Tetons on the morning of August 10th, and I have it all to myself.
Horses from my office window at a KOA in Dubois, WY the afternoon of the 10th.
Foote Access Area near Saratoga, WY on August 15th. the Platte River was on the other side of those trees to the right.
Rabbit Ear Pass near Steamboat Springs, CO. Quite possibly the prettiest camp I’ve ever had. Look at that view!
Some of the traffic at my camp outside Leadville, CO is of the hoofed variety. I end up spending more time than expected here due to my first ever vehicle breakdown.
Camped along Turquoise Lake while waiting for Bertha to get fixed – I had a tow truck drag Cas to this pretty spot with a lake view. What did I do while waiting for repairs? Climbed a mountain for starters.
On September 15th friends tow Cas down to Salida, CO for an Xscapers Convergence. When it ends, Bertha is finally fixed.
Okay, so my view at Boyd RV in Texas while work-camping isn’t very inspiring, but this huge flock of birds out my window one day was pretty cool. I also got away for day trips a couple times to break the monotony of work.
My lakefront site just outside Holloman AFB in NM on December 26th. It felt great to escape Amazon and be boondocking again.
A day later I’m camping outside Bowie, AZ with pretty rock formations out the window. What a great year 2016 turned out to be!
Hope you all enjoyed this little trip down memory lane as much as I have! If you’ll be traveling this year in an RV, even if just part-time, this is a fun way to record trips for posterity. Happy travels all!
