Camping Photos

This one phrase is quite a popular search term. This could mean that people wanna see the places they are going to camp - before they leave the house. Now where is the surprise in that? We have the secluded Campgrounds in California listed, and plenty more advice on primitive camping on the back roads. Total Escape cannot guarantee that you will get that perfect shady stream side camp site this season, but we can make finding it more likely.

Love the VISUALS!

Poppy Fields Lancaster


If you're in search of wildflowers this Spring season, then you will not want to miss the California Poppies blooming out on Hwy 138. This high desert area is known for it brilliant display of colors, as thousands of poppy stompers make their way to the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve. This is expected to be a good bloom season in poppy land, so make a day to go check out the wildflowers between Gorman & Lancaster CA.

Barker Ranch Bodies


Mid-March, sunny Spring & the Total Escape web traffic is spiking like summertime highs. Spring breakers, Easter camping trips, Wilderness wildflowers, Nope. The visitors here are increasing - because of the content. One single (8 year old page) on Barker Ranch, otherwise known as the Manson Cabin. Way out in Death Valley National Park boundaries. DanaMite checked it out with some 4x4 club one time & put it out there. We love to feature the back roads.

Even if there are more dead bodies from the cult to be found...
