These are the essentials to southern Montana shot completely on my iPhone 8 Plus and in 4k.

Yosemite National Park Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia
Yosemite National Park sits on the western slopes of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. Most visitors spend their time in Yosemite Valley, which despite being only 7 miles long and 1 mile wide, packs in more jaw-dropping scenery than just about any other place on Earth.
Near the valley entrance stop at Tunnel View, and stand before a panorama that’s reduced generations of visitors to silence. From Tunnel View it’s just a short drive to Bridalveil Fall. Fed by snowmelt, the fall reaches its thundering peak in May.
The Yosemite Valley ring road follows the banks of the Merced River, which shifts in character as it thunders from the valley walls, before gently winding across the valley floor. The ring road is dotted with trailheads that lead to 800 miles of hiking trails. The Four Mile Trail climbs the valley’s southern wall to two of Yosemite’s great outlooks, Glacier Point and Washburn Point. Further along the ring road is the trailhead for The Mist Trail, which offers stunning views of Vernal and Nevada Falls.
For thousands of years, the Ahwaneechee had villages throughout this valley, but it was at the base of Yosemite Falls where their great chief resided. Take the one-hour hike to the lower falls, or spend the day climbing all the way to the upper falls.
To the north of Yosemite Valley, is Tioga Road, one of the USA’s most scenic highways. Fill your lungs with alpine air at Olmsted Point, refresh yourself by the waters of Tenaya Lake, then spend the day at Tuolumne Meadow, the traditional summer hunting grounds of the Ahwaneechee.
From its high country to its waterfalls, its towering sequoia groves to its valley meadows, Yosemite is an American story unlike any other.

I made this trip in July 2017. Video shot with a Brinno TLC-200 Pro time-lapse camera mounted on my roof with a homemade magnetic case. I travel with two Brinno cameras - one facing forward, the other in reverse. Sometimes the reverse camera captures better video (fewer raindrops and bugs hit the rear-view lens).

Personal Safety for RVers w/Jim Koca (Webinar #22)
Welcome to Escapees Webinars! These broadcasts are intended to connect the RV-curious, or even experienced RVer, with those who have in-depth knowledge of various facets of the lifestyle.
Here, we spoke with Jim Koca, Director of Education for Escapees RV Club. He travels full-time in his RV with his wife, Lisa. They split their time between teaching RVers Boot Camp sessions and hosting adventures for fellow RVers, all for Escapees RV Club. In addition to his work with Escapees, Jim is a retired law enforcement officer, has many years of experience in accident reconstruction, and has an insatiable curiosity for how things work.
In this broadcast, Jim shared several important tips for protecting both yourself and your property as you enjoy your RV. His advice comes from his years of traveling in various types of RVs, research conducted while working in law enforcement, and bits of information he has learned from fellow RVers himself!
Tips covered today:
Find a safe RV park- there are many apps and websites out there to help you research ideal parks and learn from others' experience.
Install motion lights- very useful when you're returning to your rig after dark or need to take the dog out for a late night potty break
Replace your bay/storage locks- MANY other items out there have this identical key, CH 751, so replacing your locks makes it harder for a thief to get into your storage bays (ch751.com)
Hide your valuables- use products like Hide-a-Cans, fireproof safes, and other methods of concealment to secure your valuable belongings
Get a cellphone booster- these help you maintain a usable signal even in some remote areas
Choose your self-defense weapons carefully- Jim covers several of the options, from firearms to defensive sprays
Carry a weather radio- stay aware of your surroundings
Install a peephole in your RV door- this allows you to see who is knocking without opening your door
For solo travelers, pick up spare boots or a dog leash and keep them outside your rig- this indicates you aren't as alone as someone may assume
Don't be afraid to move- if you're uncomfortable with where you've parked, move
Keep your key fob handy- you can use it to set off your alarm to notify someone you need help or to deter an intruder
For solo travelers, use tracking apps or coordinates to share your location with trusted friends
Avoid posting your travels to social media in real-time
Consider installing a deadbolt on your RV door- -it's much stronger than the factory lock
If leaving your towable behind, use hitch locks to make it harder to steal your trailer
