We were 20 miles outside of portland and the sun was threatening to set. We'd been looking for a place to camp for almost an hour because we were told there was National Forest land in the area but not having luck. Then, we saw a nondescript sign under a highway exit sign that said "CAMPING" and got off. There was a parking lot with some cars parked in it and people fishing out on the river so we got out to explore.

Hello Montana!

Pressing on towards Bozeman, MT we were near the Idaho and Montana border and needed a place to stay the night. It was National Forest territory so we got off at a promising exit and drove around on a gravel road. There was an amazing view of some snow covered mountains so we stopped and saw that there was a quasi-campsite basically on the side of the road. We parked then hiked up a bit to explore the mountainside that we were on then came down and I saw a river down in the valley and snow still on the ground (It was about 65 degrees and had been 80 where we were earlier in the day!.

After leaving Death Valley we headed south in order to go north because there are no roads that go through Sequoia National Forest which is right next door to Death Valley. We had no idea where we would be spending the night but we knew it should be nearby in Sequoia because we were tired of driving and wanted to have time to just chill. Through looking on freecampsites.com we found out that there is free dispersed camping along the Kern River in Sequoia National Forest which is near Kernville, California. KERN. Hahaa.
