2016 Year-Round Camping

2016 was the first year I dedicated myself to camping during every month.  It's not that I couldn't do it before; it was more that I hadn't made it a priority to try.  It was fun to successfully camp out at least once a month for the first time, and once I was done I committed myself to keeping the tradition going.  

A photo collage below shows off how things looked throughout the year.  Here's where I went:

  1. January: Point Abbaye
