We often make time lapse videos at night, usually of our camp to see if any animals wander by. Usually, we don't see anything.

In Mills Canyon, New Mexico, our camp was in the trees and too dark for video. This time we placed the camera looking across the valley floor toward the ruins of the old hotel. The ruins are not visible. They are behind some trees in the distance.

weathertight totes how we keep gear dry

A frequent question we have been asked is just how waterproof is the Morris Mule trailer.

The short answer is, the Morris Mule trailer isn't waterproof, however, it does have seal around the top of the bed and a nice tongue in groove closure of the top doors that keep out a lot of the water and dust. In this video you'll see the gaskets that are in place on the trailer and the areas that don't have any gaskets.

Swan Creek Campground, Gallatin National Forest, Montana

Today is full of inspiring sights. The mountains and streams of Wyoming and Montana are awe-inspiring. Before we arrive at our reserved campsite beside Swan Creek, we stop off at the Medicine Wheel National Landmark.
