April 2013 Photo Contest - Off the Beaten Path

In honor of winning the March 2013 Photo Contest I get to pick April's theme. As it turns out, one of my friends in the upper right corner of the photo, Jim Ryan, died on Friday.

Jim loved to get out in the Airstream, but he was even more dedicated to off road trail riding in his Jeep. He helped organize Jeep Charity Rides and last month his ride earned over $16,000 for Camp New Hope.

So in honor of Jim, this month's contest theme will be "Off the Beaten Path". I'm not really sure what I'm looking for in a winning photo so this is wide open. Don't be afraid to share you photos. I've included a few to get us started.

On the north shore of the Columbia, near Alderdale, WA. You have to notice the dirt road going under the railroad or you can't get here.

Our trip over BIA13 was about as off the beaten path as we've gotten. All paved, but not recommended for RVs!

Sycamore Flats

We like Sycamore Flats when our other mountain campgrounds are closed for the season. It's sort of tucked away and hidden in a canyon near Valyermo, CA. It always seems to be empty whenever we go. We got some snow last time we were there, which is a lot of fun for us Los Angeles low-landers!
