New Shady Rest, California - 2018May 07, 2018
After a month of dry camping in the desert, it's sweet to be back in trees. The campground is tucked in a grove of Jeffrey Pine Trees & is easy walking distance to Mammoth Lakes.

Our goal for today was to escape from the smoke that was being created by the Pioneer Fire. Sadly, we had to keep moving through some absolutely beautiful areas & nice campgrounds.
Wood River Campground, IdahoJul 27, 2016
The 1st campground we stopped at was a dust bowl. We thought about spending the night but decided to push on. The next one down the road was a winner — paved road & sites. Nice!
Scout Mountain Campground, IdahoJul 21, 2016
"The decision to leave a day early from our previous campground was a wise move. We came up with a very spacious & private campsite at Scout Mountain just south of Pocatello, ID."
Emigration Campground, IdahoJul 20, 2016
We're not crazy about this campground — it has a ridden hard & put up wet feel. We paid for two nights, but think we'll cut our losses & move on in the morning.
Lodgepole Campground, Utah (2016)Jul 17, 2016
Our sort of day, only 55 miles of driving in which we moved from the desert floor up to the trees again. We're tucked in on a spacious site amongst the aspens and lodgepole pines.
Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area (2016)Jul 17, 2016
Playing tourist, we did a little campground reconnaissance & found this site – very spacious with a knock-out view through the Ponderosa pines. We just had to take it.
