Southwest Camping

Filed under: Photo Blog — Mia @ 12:50 pm

2,250 miles of driving and temperatures ranging between 26 and 86 degrees may not seem like a vacation to some, but I loved sleeping outdoors and hearing the beat of my own drummer. A Jetboil stove in a cup and a catalytic flameless tent heater made camping fun. I had hoped to catch a photo of Shiprock beneath the May 17th full moon. The moon was clouded that night but the Shiprock sunset experience was surreal.
