From Will about this image:

Taken while on a 5 day backpacking trip in the Wind River Range, WY.
There's something special about the discovery of a new campsite. In a region where there are no reservations, but only practices for minimizing your impact, you spend the later moments of the day in search for the ideal spot. You look for dry, flat ground; a spot that is free from deadfall (dead trees that could fall on you) and is distant, but within range of water sources. Sometimes there's bugs or it begins or rain or snow, but other times you'll wake up to the call of coyotes, or you'll have a midnight view like this. You go to sleep when it gets dark, you wake up when it gets light. You have your morning coffee a make breakfast. You pack up and leave, hopefully without a trace, and begin hiking the day away until the shadows of the trees and your being lengthen. You begin to look for a new spot and repeat the process. Each day a new place to sleep, to eat, and enjoy the company of your friends and the earth. As the days go on and if you're there long enough, the entire region might just begin to feel like home.
