This is truly an amazing place for sunrise photos! Way better than braving the crowds in nearby Arches. Thanks for the tip, this is one of the most spectacular views I've seen.

This is a classic GTNP hike! It is easy, and incredibly scenic. Well worth even braving the summer clouds.

Great camping and tons of trails to hike! This is a true hill country gem.

And not a half bad spot to sit and glass the abundant wildlife of the Tetons. Just to the south of Signal Mountain is a heavy griz and wolf area... and you'll likely see tons of elk as well.

This is one of the best, most scenic places to learn nordic skiing. And even for the advanced, there are dedicated lanes for folks who know what they're doing and want to go fast. Fantastic views of the Tetons and wildlife opportunities the whole way!

This might be my favorite hike of all time in the Winds. The payoff is huge for a relatively easy hike in. The fist 5 miles are super easy, then the last 4 or so are a little rough. Definitely worth it though.

This really is a great getaway not far from Austin. Pace Bend is not the quietest place to camp, but if you just need to get away for a few nights and sleep under the stars, it's legit. And the cliff jumping is fantastic if the lake water level is high enough.

This place really is one of my absolute favorites in Texas! Whether you are in to birds, reptiles, or just strolling along Spanish moss laden trails, this park is a true gem. I personally love the gators :)

In all of the short hikes in GTNP, String and Leigh are my favorites. These lakes are incredibly beautiful and offer photographers tons of opportunities.

I have been going to this site for nearly 10 years, and it truly is one of the best in all of WY! It's frequently occupied, but if you can snag it, you won't be sorry. the views are unparalleled and it's free!

I didn't have any luck either getting Hood to show... but it was still a really cool spot. I'll try again!

We missed this place on two separate OR coast trips... thankfully we stumbled on it this time. We stayed extra days there b/c it is so magical. An absolute must for photographers! Nearby Bullards Beach State Park is a great place to camp too.

I loved my stay here a few weeks again, thanks Grant! It was an epic place for photography, especially sunsets.

With all the Trillium shots I was seeing on IG, I had to check it out. It's a great spot, and if you can snag the huge campsite just on the right as you pull in to the southernmost overflow camping, you are golden! One of the best campsites I've ever had.

Very worthwhile hike! And Big Bend is the best, least visited National Park in the U.S. If you like your solitude, this is the park for you!
