There used to be a thread on the truck camper forum -- "A Camper with a View" or something like that. It would be great if us TT folks could have our own version of that. The rule was that the photo had to include a portion of the door frame or window frame, so that it was clear that the photo was taken from the trailer itself.

(Feel free to break that rule, since there is no way of enforcing it. And who needs rules, anyways? Also, I admit this is asking a lot -- how are you going to produce new photos taken from your trailer, when camping season is at an end? Maybe we will get more participation next summer . . . . )

Anyway, I'll start the game: We got back a few weeks ago from a month of (mostly) boondocking and dry camping in Utah's Uintas, Idaho's Boulder Mtns. and the Salmon Valley/Sawtooths, Nevada's Great Basin National Park, and the Eastern Sierra. I am still struggling with my blog entries for each of those places. But here are my "door shots" from that trip.

This is not far from Washington Lake, Utah. Those are Bald Mtn. and Reid's Peak, each about 12,000 feet. We were camped at 10,000 feet:

This is in the Salmon River Valley of Idaho, south of Stanley -- that's the Galena Summit area in the background:

OK, now it's your turn!

It's different in the West, apparently. Most of the time I see the neighbor's rig outside our door! Sad isn't it.

At our Florida campsite, we had a gorgeous view of a wall of vegetation, about 5 feet from our window that separated us from the next campsite.

In AZ we viewed a vista of miles of dry dusty sand sprinkled with scrub brush and prickly pear cactus.

Some campsites are not too picturesque, others are quite nice.


Twenty six foot 2010 Dutchmen Lite pulled with a 2011 EcoBoost F-150 4x4.

Just right for Grandpa, Grandma and the dog.

I could only find one with the door frame. This is Lazy A Campground in WV where we stopped for one night while headed home this past summer.

My favorite picture though is this one, site 54 at Hunting Island State Park in SC, taken in August. The sad part is that this photo might never be possible again. Hunting Island was hit really hard by Matthew and is completely closed thru the end of the year. When it reopens, I don't have a good feeling about the "up front" sites like 54.

Luckily someone here created a Dropbox account that makes it really easy. Upload your picture here. Then copy the link it gives you and paste it into your post.
