The building you see is Officer's Guest house not a lodge.
since I knew the Officer he was kind to allow us to stay there.
For forest camp, we have to drive down few km.

Near the forest camp.

Joshua Tree NP enroute to Busses by the Bridge. Mixed winter weather, some rain, strong winds, pretty cold. When clear, a big beautiful moon.

Here are some shot of my camping spots in Roosevelt National Forest, just outside Rocky Mountain National Park and about 20 minutes from my home in Estes Park.

Not a Westy (yet), but here we are at Fiesta Island in San Diego. You can drive on the sand, and have your dog run (and swim) wild; at least until they build a resort on it. It was about 80-degrees. There was a Santa Ana and the wind kicked up to about 30 miles and hour. It was cool looking, but the wind driven sand gets in all of your orifices, and the van's.

Wow. I was perusing this thread and found my old synchro! Unmistakeable the Hawaiian stencil design I did. Nice to know she's still around or was 8 years ago.

Medora Campground in Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota.

Ran into this guy there. He loved the skull camo. Said he had just bought this bus for way too much money a week before, immediately drove from Jersey on his way to glacier national park to pick up some lady, and had broken down every single day of the trip. He was jealous of my subie powered reliability, but did not envy the ridiculous amount of money I've put into the van.

Sunset at Pawnee Buttes, in the Pawnee National Grassland, northeast Colorado. This area is also littered with active Minuteman nuclear missile silos.

That's a very cool place. Easy to get lost out there, too (I know from experience Very Happy) Everybody wants to go west to the mountains, but Colorado's eastern plains has some fantastic solitary stuff as well.

Yes, we were in the neighborhood visiting the Nebraska state high point. I looked at the GPS and found Pawnee Buttes on the same dirt road just south of the high point. Why not? It was a great place. Lots of folks shooting randomly at things, which was unnerving, but the stars were bright and I made a great hash for dinner. With good software there is no chance of being lost. Thanks for the comment!
