Reflecting on Why We Camp

Here are 4 photos taken this last year during our Airstream Travels. They capture a bit of the sense of why we got our rig in the first place and why we enjoy it so much. Camping in our Silver Igloo--Iggy--has opened a whole new world of enjoyable experiences.

Pacific Sunset, watching the close of a day capped by a peaceful sunset along the California coast.

Enjoying paddling on smooth-as-glass water in the Sierra foothills.

Rallying with about a hundred fellow Northern California aluma-nuts along the Russian River.

Finally, an Airstream can sleep 4 adults and 2 dogs well enough that we're all up for a peddle tram ride the next day in Monterey.

Unhappy Reflections on a life cut short!

As with most families, to have or have not, regarding a pet came in 2000. Our girl's named our dog: Rex Millennium "Dog of the Century". He loved camping and being with us, and hated being left behind. A friend once told us he would practice "opera" whenever we left him in the trailer (LOL), say.... to go to dinner. Of course we thought he was the best dog ever. He succumbed to heart problems this last summer. RIP: 3/2000 - 7/2011.

My Take on Reflection

Ok, pushing the boundary for Reflections, but hey, gotta try. Lake McDonald at Glacier National Park in early morning.

Unreal right? These are gorgeous. I have some favorites already though, All of them!

And I deliberately did not put in a requirement for the Airstream to be in the pic. Some of these are just amazing. Gotta tell you, the dog in sunglasses on a boat with the two girls is right up there...And who doesn't like Corona, or mirror lake, or a grandkid reflecting on the future, or..., or..., or... This will be so hard I have decided to take some sage advice from the previous months winner...Don't worry about it till the contest is over, kick back and enjoy the pics till then.
So I am enjoying...(someone should make a calendar with these pics) use the winner of each month? I'll buy one!

Oh, oh....since we're mentioning Glacier...here's our kids playing in that same lake. This is the reason why we Airstream and travel...for us, it's all about the kiddos, and hopefully they will think back and "reflect" on all of the wonderful times and places they've been:

These are two new reflection shots. Just taken this past weekend on a trip to Pt. Reyes, CA. Being the first forum photo contest I've entered, it was fun to look for cool and unique shots of the airstream! And we had a beautiful setting to take photos.
