Lost Coast Camp

Lost Coast Camp

Camp on the Lost Coast Trail in the Sinkyone Wilderness, a verdant, jurassic paradise where 2-foot earth worms as thick as hot dogs inch through the dirt, and ferns grow to become the size of VWs. It's also fantastically remote; one of the last great places where you can expect the stresses of society to slink back into the foggy forest and disappear. Shot for Visit Mendocino.

Climbers in The Pit

Climbers in The Pit

Campers in the Pit just north of Bishop, CA. This BLM campground boasts spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada and is only $2 per night. The tradeoff is that it is quite literally a big, dirt pit. The sites are close together and some don't have picnic tables or fire rings. It's mostly a spot for exhausted climbers to crash. The place was almost full when I stayed there, but I only noticed one other campfire! I was so excited to see someone else enjoying some cozy flames that I had to take this sneaky photo.
