But then, there's this.
|From National Forest Service Land. Your land.|
|From a boondocking spot. Not your cow.|
|Maaaaw! We got company!|
Quick! Run and get me a clean muumuu!
|Jail Trail, Old Town Cottonwood|
|Riparian area along Verde River|
Some teenaged boys were fishing here, arguing about who tangled the line. I felt like I was in 1954, but only in the good ways.
|The sky always looks grainy up close. Ask an astronaut.|
|I can tell you how to boondock here, if you're interested. No? Okay, no problem.|
I need your input on an idea. I've been thinking of putting together some boondocking spots - that we have seen or used personally - that work well for summer camping. They would mesh, rather than overlap, with Marianne's excellent fall/winter/spring camping series. [← You should get these.]
I'm thinking maps, coordinates, and pertinent information (phone/data signal? elevation?). If you're expecting sparkling travel narrative, you should pick up some Steinbeck.
The same information would still be free here within the blog, so is there any point? Would you ever pay for something you could dig up for free with a little effort? [← Who would do this?]
If you're thinking of venturing into National Forest Service land to boondock, you'll love the apps. It's not a centralized process, so some forests have them and some haven't them. Coconino and Prescott have them, Kaibab has apps for the Williams and Tusayan districts, but not yet the North Kaibab. You can tell exactly where you are in reference to permitted camping sites, and cell service is not required.
Pay no heed to my melancholy. The Sun hasn't shone through for hours.
