On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
In May 2022, my family and I took our first trip home to see my parents and brother and his fam since pre-pandemic. We spent two nights at Jumbo Rocks campground and it was spectacular. Our first mistake was bringing a pile of Long Islanders who hadn’t seen the sun since last fall to the high desert. We sunscreened like crazy and still got pretty pink! Our second mistake was thinking we could bring a pile of kids between 5 and 14 years old to some huge boulders and not have 17 heart attacks. They have no fear!
