Tent Life !

This is a gallery of shots of us enjoying camping away from towns, roads and commercial campsites. Multi-day or even overnight trips are a little bit special with a much greater feeling of escaping from urban life than a single day walk. We wouldn't trade any of these camps for nights in a 5* hotel (well maybe occasionally!). Many of the shots are of the tent on hill or mountain tops but some are in canyons, river valleys or on the coast. Our tent for most of these trips has been the Terra Nova Voyager- our faithful friend !
