And I’m on a two-week hiking and camping vacation in southern Utah right now.
I’ve written about how I often go camping when I need to get a lot of freelance writing done, and I’ve also written about the importance of time alone for boosting creativity.
I’m not doing much writing on this trip; it’s primarily about recharging my batteries and just enjoying the beauty of the Southwest. This time I’m traveling solo and doing a lot of dispersed camping and boondocking, although the last two times I was here I shared the Southwest with my life partner Stephanie.

I shot this just after sunrise from my dispersed campsite on Bureau of Land Management land in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. I describe the landscape and I explain why visiting such remote locations is good for freelance writers.
