Life isn’t about doing what you want. Sometimes it’s about just letting go, floating away, and letting the road (or river) take you... • For almost a year on this journey, I have been photographing everything that inspires me... which fills my heart with excitement and passion and allows me a creative outlet!! and then comes the PRESSURE... • “I’m 5 days behind editing and 10 days behind posting and I just want to share what I’m feeling right now!” This is the battle I was fighting on almost a daily basis. It seemed important to be present with how a place made me feel, to write about it that day, not a week later, and to “post in the moment”... • But what I realized was... it’s more important to be in the next real life moment than scrambling to hold on to the last one... • So my friends, this photo is almost 3 weeks old. Not because I don’t care, not because I didn’t want to share it the day I took it, but because there are so many more important things happening outside of the little device I hold (too often) in my hand... • It’s all about balance. Note to self: Photograph what calls to me, edit when it’s dark and we have to be in the camper, and write when we’re on a 5 hour stretch of ugly highway... Don’t miss the beautiful things because you’re looking at your phone. And most importantly... give your best attention to the boy that loves you! • When I’ve spent more time staring at Instagram than at the love of my life, that is when it’s time to refocus priorities... and allow myself get behind on the little things that, in all honesty, aren’t as important...❤️ • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #roamtheplanet #inspirational #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #horseshoebend #wordsofwisdom #fuckinstagram #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #thestruggleisreal
This spot marks one trip around the earth! 24,902 miles!! • We hit this magic number (see photo 2) as we pulled up to the Grand Canyon and shared a kiss here to celebrate!! • Thanks Cloud Camper for taking us “around the world”... next trip around begins now! #24902 • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #overland #vanlife #grandcanyon #milestone #couplegoals #aroundtheworld #aroundtheglobe #love #kiss #celebrategoodtimes #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #exploremore #thisisliving #theoutbound #lovetotravel #lifeofadventure
We made a last minute decision, not long before sunset, to hike Cathedral Rock in Sedona. • We were only going to trek up to the first overlook, but at each plateau the view was more gorgeous, so we just kept going up... #cantstopwontstop • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #livingsmall #optoutside #letsgosomewhere #vanlifeexplorers #planetdiscovery #exploringtheglobe #truckcamperlife #4x4 #overlanding #followyourfeet #keepitwild #adventureepic #wanderlust #naturelovers #vanlifecommunity #travellife #sedona #cathedralrock #hikearizona #roamtheplanet #hikingadventures
You never know what you’re going to find when you return to your campspot... • We don’t camp in campgrounds really, and most of the time don’t even camp near other people. But outside Sedona, even on this forest road, people were scattered everywhere! • We had also broken one of our Cloud Camper rules, and were attempting to find a spot in the dark... which after scouting offshoots and shining headlamps on the side of the road we found, basically the last open spot in this area. • The following night we returned to our spot, which had revealed epic views as the morning shed her light, so we were excited to return. • We drove in and were met by an unfriendly neighbor who had the nerve to tell us we were not welcome to camp there again, as this was “his area” and he didn’t want us in the way of his view... #seriously • This was the spot we found instead. Peaceful, level and next to some happy singing hippie neighbors! ✌🏻 • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #overland #vanlife #adventurevehicle #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #karmaisabitch
When you reach out for my hand, it encourages me to climb higher and hike further... and when you believe in me, accomplishing challenges and overcoming fears become more possible. • Two years ago on 4/13/16 we went on a date. Two years later we stand on a sandstone bridge, on top of the world, and celebrate life, love, and knowing together we can accomplish anything. 💕 • Thank you for being my rock! #happytwoyears #devilsbridge • • • @motivation__earth @outdoorwow @awakethesoul #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #sedona #hikearizona ##naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #hikingadventures #hikingadventure #couplegoals #nikond500 #twoyearanniversary #redrocks #love #anniversary #theworldismyplayground #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #naturalwonder
This tree is 225 million years old! Throughout the petrified forest you can see hundreds of fallen trees that lived in the Late Triassic Period. • The craziest part? The wood had already turned to stone and looked just like this when dinosaurs roamed the earth! • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #petrifiedforest #petrifiedwood #petrifiedrainbow #ourplanetdaily #wildernessculture #wilderness #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #middleofnowhere #simplelife #adventure #getlost #exploremore #thisisliving #theoutbound #lovetotravel #lifeofadventure #triassic #millionyearsago #dinosaurs
Would you believe this tunnel is 183 feet high!? The natural arch is believed to be the largest natural travertine bridge in the world - 400 feet long, 150 feet wide and 183 feet tall! • At Tonto Natural Bridge State Park in Payson, AZ, you can access trails that take you around, down and under the bridge. Climbing through it is quite magnificent! • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #hikingadventures #hikenaked #takeahike #rockclimbing #naturalliving #offthebeatenpath #roadtrip #taketheroadlesstraveled #lifeontheroad #vanlifers #livingthedream #theworldismyplayground #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #takeahike #roadtrippin #openroad #vanlifemovement #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #hikearizona #tontonaturalbridge
Our morning hike destination: The Gila River, where HOT water seeps along the banks for a couple hundred feet... • Unfortunately the one rock pool was not soakable, but an interesting hike (and squeeze!) through a canyon where at parts it was only a couple feet wide... not to mention the views at the river. • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #takeahike #openroad #vanlifemovement #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #gilariver #hikearizona #hotsprings #hotspring #geothermal #hotspringlife #soakitup
If you aren’t keen on swimming down a mine shaft (we weren’t - see the photo prior to this one!) hike a little farther up and you’ll find THIS! • One of the most epic soaks we have ever discovered - there was something magical about climbing into the side of the earth, sitting in a steamy bath under mineral crystals and watching little drops of hot water fall into this perfectly clear pool... • Mother Nature, you’re pretty incredible.

Never seen this before - Hot Spring in a mine shaft!! • If you scurry up the steep and slippery bank of Eagle Creek, just before you reach the waterfall you will find this one-of-a-kind Hot Spring! It’s truly unlike anything we’ve ever seen! #oneofakind • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #hotsprings #geothermalwater #naturalshower #geothermal #hotspringlife #hikenaked #naked #nakedinnature #soakitup #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #naturelovers #vanlifecommunity #travellife #adventureculture #tourtheplanet #travelstoke #timeoutsociety #inspravel #wonderout #lovethisglobe #travelgram #eaglecreektrail
This tree came into view and I demanded Jeremy stop the truck. I hopped out immediately to stand under its branches and admire this green beauty! • After a month of dry desert, surrounded by cactus and leafless bushes, in this moment I realized how much I missed green lush leafy trees! #noplacelikehome • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @tree_captures #offthebeatenpath #roadtrip #taketheroadlesstraveled #lifeontheroad #livingthedream #theworldismyplayground #planetdiscovery #exploringtheglobe #truckcamperlife #4x4 #overlanding #followyourfeet #keepitwild #adventureepic #simplyadventure #instatravel #travelawesome #worldplaces #vagabondpix #serialtraveler #passionpassport #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty
So we’re making our way north, on a dirt road east of San Filipe, and we come across an abandoned house and this truck... • It was calling to me and I had to stop and photograph it (I love abandoned/old places!) • So there I am, taking this photo and trying to take the next, what would have been a front angle, but before I could press the button... BUZZZ-ZING!! 🐝 A bee got me right in the elbow! #outofhere • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #abandonedplaces #oldtruck #vintage #vintagetruck #rusty #livingsmall #optoutside #vanliving #tinyhouse #offthegrid #outboundliving #outdoorliving #letsgosomewhere #adventureculture #tourtheplanet #travelstoke #timeoutsociety #inspravel #wonderout #lovethisglobe #travelgram #beesting #🐝 #🚚 #photographylife #baja
This is Misión San Francisco Borja, a Spanish mission established in 1762 that has been cared for by the same family for 8 generations! • It’s a 20 mile dirt road from Rosarito to reach the mission, but well worth it. In addition to touring the mission, on site you will find camping and a hot spring! • • • #sanborja #mission #spanishmission #thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #1700s #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #exploretheunknown #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #baja #hotspring #architecture #oldbuildings #optoutside #offthegrid #outboundliving #outdoorliving #letsgosomewhere
Climbing rocks takes me back being a child and climbing on anything and everything I could find... • I loved to explore, following a path in the woods to see where led to, climbing up hills and high into trees... • Some things never change #livetoexplore • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturalliving #offthebeatenpath #roadtrip #taketheroadlesstraveled #lifeontheroad #livingthedream #theworldismyplayground #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #takeahike #roadtrippin #openroad #vanlifemovement #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #allthecolors #rockclimbing #coloredrocks
When the the universe hands you stars, make star trails 💫 • We tried to leave this spot but Mother Nature wouldn’t let us! And so this is where we got stuck: on a secluded beach, under the stars... • Earlier, the tide had come in and the only road back was flooded... We were trapped on a stretch of beach between two rocky points. • We settled in and prepared to spend the night, next to the ocean with the stars spinning above us ✨ • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #startrails #startrail #longexpo_addiction #longexposure_shots #longexposure #longexpo #nightphotography #starphotography #constellation #northstar #igphotomagic #igphotooftheday #optoutside #vanlife #love #✨ #neverstopexploring #homeiswhereyouparkit #homeiswheretheheartis #💫 #❤️ #makeart
Once in a while there is a place on this earth you come upon that captures your heart and makes your wild spirit sing! It steals your breath away and fills you with excitement as you feel the warm salt air on your face and the ocean water wash over your feet... This was one of those places... #sancosme • Where the only road is the one you create, the Cloud Camper finds its way across the rocky ocean’s edge... #taketheroadlesstraveled • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #overland #vanlife #adventurevehicle #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #middleofnowhere #baja #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #naturelovers #bajacaliforniasur #vanlifecommunity #travellife
Massachusetts to Alaska to Mexico and this Baja drive has the most colorful rocks anywhere!! • If you travel down this way, don’t miss the dirt road drive from La Paz to San Evaristo! Incredible coastline and colors that will blow your mind! • High clearance needed and 4x4 recommended. #taketheroadlesstraveled • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #exploremore #ourplanetdaily #wildernessculture #wilderness #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #middleofnowhere #simplelife #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #baja #bajacalifornia #allthecolors
This vulture circled me as I stood on the peak of a cliff. He went around, big giant circles, swooping down 4 or 5 times. Not sure if he was interested in me or hoping I was food... maybe both. • If I could connect on a deeper level with any animal, I would choose to be a bird whisperer... • What would be your spirit animal? 🐤 • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #birdwatching #birdphotography #perfecttiming #birdsofinstagram #turkeyvulture #turkeyvultures #vultureculture #vulture #birdlife #optoutside #mountaintop #offthegrid #outboundliving #outdoorliving #thisisliving #neveradullmoment #neverstopexploring #spiritanimal #birdwhisperer #wingspan #wings_in_light #wingsoffreedom
Confession: the Cloud Camper has a hard time turning around! There’s that constant curiosity of what’s around the next turn or over the next hill that makes every 2 hour drive 6 hours long... • What’s at the end of these unknown roads? Treasure! ...or a rocky point with a perfect camping spot! • Know the feeling? Where’s your favorite place a mystery road has taken YOU? #neverstopexploring • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #vanlife #adventurevehicle #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #getlost #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #exploremore
Our travels are often dictated by the sun. Basically living outside, there’s only a handful of nighttime activities, so our day begins at sunrise and ends at sunset. • Locating our nightly camp spot before dark is always ideal... finding this one at sunset was perfect! • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #overland #vanlife #adventurevehicle #ourplanetdaily #sunsetbeach #sunsetphotography #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #middleofnowhere #simplelife #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #naturelovers #baja #vanlifecommunity #travellife
there’s a magical moment each evening when the stars start to glimmer in the sky and the sun has dropped below the earth... the glow of sunset is no longer visible to the naked eye, but to an open shutter, it’s a combination of mystical wonder! #longexposure #starphotography #nightphotography #nikond500 • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #naturephotography #naturelovers #nature #natureshot #naturalbeauty #moonrise #startrails #wonder #optoutside #vanliving #offthegrid #outboundliving #outdoorliving #letsgosomewhere #thisisliving #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #exploremore
Rewind for a moment to before we left to travel... the daily grind has been taking its toll, and I am daydreaming about living on the road... • Often I’m envisioning a picturesque campsite on the beach... teal blue waters, warm sunshine, and the Cloud parked oceanside... well, I think this is it! #dreamsdocometrue • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #vanlife #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #wanderlust #naturelovers #overland #vanlifecommunity #travellife #baja #bajacalifornia #bajacaliforniasur #hotsprings #picturesque #thisisit #oceanfront #naturephotography #naturelovers #natureshot #naturalbeauty #bestoftheday
Hot Springs are truly magical, and this beachside build-your-own tidal pool is no exception! • The geothermal waters gush from the sand at a unbelievable 172° and mix with the ocean water to form an ever-changing temperature and truly a one of a kind experience! #soakitup • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #hotsprings #geothermalwater #naturalshower #geothermal #hotspringlife #hikenaked #naked #nakedinnature #optoutside #ourplanetdaily #roamtheplanet #discoverearth #exploreeverything #neverstopexploring #simplelife #offthebeatenpath #roadtrip #taketheroadlesstraveled #lifeontheroad #livingthedream #theworldismyplayground #adventure #beachlife #baja #bajacalifornia #vanlife
Approaching a city can often be a camping nightmare... densely populated areas mean less quiet secluded spots and a lack of dirt roads that go nowhere... • But not in Baja! We found this epic beach camp spot just across from La Paz, and we had it to ourselves... #perfection • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #overland #vanlife #optoutside #offthegrid #outboundliving #vanlife #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #naturelovers #vanlifecommunity #travellife #baja #bajacaliforniasur #lapaz #sunset #sunsets #sunsetphotography #cloudporn
Making new friends in Baja! • Bahía de Concepción has camping on almost every beach... most have minimal facilities and charge you to park there, but some spots are free! • The interesting thing we noticed is the difference between the two... • Paid Camping: dozens of long RVs with slideouts, spacious trailers and fancy truck campers. Free Beach: a car, a bicycle, two tents, a 4Runner, this VW bus... and the Cloud Camper! and 10 new friends around a camp fire 🔥 @jackie_buckets @sailingmagiccarpet @queseraseratravel • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #overland #vanlife #vwbus #volkswagenbus #yellowbus #beachlife #campervan #campcamp #simplelife #baja #bajacaliforniasur #thegreatoutdoors #getoutstayout #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #roadtrippin #vanlifemovement #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #vanlifecommunity #travellife
We had read about “a pile of rocks in the shape of a lightbulb” but didn’t know exactly what we were looking for... • Then the tide went out and this appeared! And in the center of the ring, a hot bubbling spring flows up into the ocean. • While not hot enough to soak, it was a neat find nonetheless. #hotspring • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #hotsprings #geothermalwater #geothermal #hotspringlife #baja #spring #nakedinnature #soakitup #bajacalifornia #thegreatoutdoors #beachlife #getoutstayout #outdoorlife #getoutdoors #roadtrippin #openroad #vanlifemovement #projectvanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #homeonwheels #wanderlust #naturelovers #overland #vanlifecommunity #travellife
My big strong man took his machete and cut me open a coconut on the beach! • We drank the fresh coconut water (it was delicious!) and then ate the meat with honey and lime! 🥥 🍯 🍋 YUM! • It was basically like eating a tropical drink... without the alcohol of course... but who needs that when you’ve got a man splitting coconuts and this view!! #drunkonlife #lovemyman • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo #lifeisanadventure #adventureawaits #adventurous #experiencelife #theroadlesstraveled #goplaces #exploretheunknown #journeyoflife #getlost #livingsmall #optoutside #vanliving #offthegrid #outboundliving #outdoorliving #letsgosomewhere #thisisliving #baja #bajacalifornia #bajacaliforniasur #bahiaconcepcion #coconut #coconuts #rawfood #beachlife
I’m the type of person that will make up any excuse to stay in bed a little longer... but when I peek out the velcro window of the Cloud and see this... I’M UP!! • Photography is one of those things that drives me. To get that perfect shot I’ll get up before the sun, stay up late for the stars, shoot when I’m tired, cold, hungry... forgetting I’m any of those things... because my focus is my #PASSION ✨ • • • #Thecloudcamper #wheredoesthatroadgo @fourwheelcampers @mainlineoverland #fourwheelcampers #toyotatacoma #homeiswhereyouparkit #camperlife #truckcamper #offroad #overland #vanlife #baja #sunrise_sunsets_aroundworld #offthebeatenpath #taketheroadlesstraveled #lifeontheroad #beachcamping #livingthedream #theworldismyplayground #adventure #roadtohappiness #gosomewhere #goingplaces #exploredreamdiscover #theworldisbeautiful #stayandwonder #experienceeverything #adventurethatislife #exploremore
