For example here is a little SOB encampment off FH50:

Thanks, ShullsinUtah!

PS -- TravlinMan's "Please Tell Me" thread from a couple of years ago has good examples of planning boondocking trips by using Google Maps' satellite views, in addition to detailed maps available online.

Haha. Ok, this needs a little explanation. If you look at the data for google earth aerial photos in this area, they were taken on July 24, 2015. This is the "pioneer day" holiday in Utah and it's the largest summer holiday in the state. Believe it or not, it's bigger than the 4th of July.

So the dispersed camping areas were really filled up on the day the photo was taken (which was good, because more of the areas show in on the map).
It wasn't nearly that busy when we were there. If you pull down to street level view in maps, you'll see that most of the sites were empty on the day the google car drove by...

Beautiful pictures everyone. This thread is one of my favorites. Thanks for the history lesson OTRA15. Roosevelt's wild ride has inspired me to visit the Adirondack's. I'm sure there's a marker where, Roosevelt received the telegraph about President McKinley's health. Thank you everyone for showing me places to visit.

Thanks, when we stepped over that small creek named the Hudson River, the enormity of that time in history sank in.

Yes this is a great thread, thanks pfcardwell!

Camping neighbors, originally from a different, perhaps less-pampered era.... Salem, Oregon. Nothing fancy about the site, except our cool vintage unit neighbors...

Great photos Ron, thanks! I think your middle shot is from this book, in case anyone wants to spring for a used copy. Maybe some libraries have one? Peter

Conveniently located 10 minutes from wine towns of Los Olivos and San Ynes. My glamour shots of wine beat the camping glamour shots for sure. I blame the wine googles.

With everything else you've had going on, glad to see you got to go camping (at least one night).

Haha - well this was the last day before my AC started smoking and before I got home to my driveway issues

It’ll all work out - the real enemy is lack of annual leave from work.
