Near the San Rafael Swell courtesy the BLM in Utah. We were about a quarter mile from a road that carried maybe 2 dozen cars by day and even fewer at night. Dry-camped a week there in late September. So dark on a cloudy night we couldn't see our hands in front of our faces and so quiet the only thing we could hear was the noises inside our heads. Nice dark sky for our use of telescopes, of course. The solar/inverter allowed us much comfort without even thinking about using the generator or consciously conserving energy. The peace and quiet was impressive.

Life is a cruel teacher. She gives the test first; the lesson then follows.

When we stayed in Moab, I learned that my cell phone's flashlight wasn't nearly bright enough! I was in a RV park and walked to the dumpster to toss trash. I turned around and had a moment where I had to get my bearings to find my way back to the camper.

I *loved* the darkness!

Another one at Orchard Beach State Park, because we had something to go to in Onekama. Next week, we're going somewhere else, I swear (Apple Festival in Charlevoix, MI).



Had to put down my 13 year old lab on Saturday. That part was awful, but this is our 10(?) month old puppy, being CALM for 3 minutes.

It was a Halloween themed weekend. I guess next year i'll bring more decorations. Some people go all out on this weekend.

Fawn Lake Resort, Lone Butte BC Canada Site 7. I loved it so much there, I stayed 1 week longer than I planned. Great spot. Quiet and peaceful.

Cruisin the Coast ... been going for several years, but first time with a camper - free style boondocking on Hwy 90 in a big empty (not so much that weekend) parking lot created by Hurricane Katrina.
