Bag Night Challenge 2020

Bolam Pass Campsite

Since I am pretty sure that I’m now done camping for the rest of the year, I’ll go ahead and post up my total nights spent camping in 2020. While we had to cancel and change a number of our planned trips, especially in the spring, I am pretty happy that I still managed to get out and spend 70 nights under the stars! I’m hoping that 2021 will be a better year for everyone!

Photos from many of our campsites can be found here: Campsites of 2020

Campsites of 2020

While 2020 didn’t quite go as planned and I had a number of trips that were either cancelled or changed, especially in the spring, I still managed to get out quite a bit and spent 70 nights camping under the stars, which I am pretty happy about! Here are a few photos of my campsites from throughout the year. You can find a complete list of everywhere we camped at the following link: Bag Night Challenge 2020

Favorite Albums of 2020

Update 12/4/2020: Since it doesn’t look like there are any more album releases that I am interested in for the rest of the year, I’m pretty sure that this is going to be the final list of my favorite albums of 2020, so I’ve now bumped it back up to the beginning of the blog!

I guess it’s that time of the year where I’m going to start sharing my favorite albums of 2020! If you have followed along with this microBLOG over the past couple of years you might have noticed that I try to attend a lot of concerts throughout the year. Well, besides spending much of my free time exploring the Colorado Plateau and Rocky Mountains, music is also an important part of my life. I will continue to update this post throughout the rest of the year when I come across an album I love and then will bump it back up to the top at the end of the year when the list is complete.

You can check out my favorite albums from previous years by following these links:
