Backcountry Toilets / Views from the bathroom


What a view! Jack Creek Preserve, Montana

When you go to the bathroom on a normal day, you're likely to be looking at the bottom half of a blank wall. If you're lucky, you're looking at the design of your shower curtain. Most bathrooms aren't particularly noteworthy. Sit down > peepoop > wipe > wash hands > exit. Typical. 

In the backcountry, you'll have some of THE BEST views of your life while doing the mundane task of peepooping. (Pst. "peepoop" is a term I made up during a bike tour to capture urgent peeing and pooping. Most of us pee when we poop, don't we? (Ok, I digress.) 

Well yesterday, I was working on a quick blog resource to find gear for free or cheap and in a split second, two hours of work was gone! (I'll recreate it soon!) Anyway, I felt pretty bummed about it so hopped on a bike and went mountain biking in the woods instead. Today, it seemed most relevant to share the beauty of a shit hole (literally). Enjoy!
