Near Senger Creek. Too early for tent setup, so we were chilling in the shade for a while

It's hard to follow @fishmonger's excellent photos, but in the interest of keeping this thread alive, here is a scene from our camp across Granite Lake in Emigrant Wilderness, September 2016.

Not many campsite photos during 2016. Below is a typical desert road trip camp:

On desert road trips that are usually late winter, one does not have to deal with insects. Many nights I end up sleeping in the rear bed of my Forester since the rear seats fold down. However on pleasant clear moonless nights may enjoy watching our vast Universe. Then will plunk down a blue plastic tarp with my sleeping bag atop and various other gear at hands reach including books, maps, food, and drink. This spot was way up a rocky 4WD road with a large plain of dense yellow wildflowers and rusty red Paleozoic era mountains for a colorful backdrop. I'm parked in a wash channel just off that road that had many small wildflower species about.

The above was on day 2 of our 9 day Silver Divide backpack, on the north side of Bighorn Lake at 10900 feet. A good spot for dusk light across the lake waters.

Below was my spot in a cozy shady clump of whitebark pine south of lake 11280+ on my Dusy Basin 5-day backpack. Upper Dusy Basin landscapes are rather open thus not much privacy. However there are some nice spots IF one ventures closer to Columbine Peak and stays well away from the no name lakes or the usual route to Knapsack Pass. BA UL1 tent without the fly. That is my Osprey Talon 22 daypack at frame bottom that contains all my photo gear.
