St Peters Dome, NM
Abandoned fire tower W5N/SE-035
Fred KT5X (WSTA), Steve WD9FJL and John K1DJ are accomplished ops and well known in SOTA circles after activating many regional summits.

Myron, WVH in Westminster, CO ... though the Big Dry Creek doesn't look all that dry to me. A nice relaxing spot, Myron.

Video of QRPTTF at WVH here

I think Nick, WA5BDU, has worked about every QRPTTF ever and always finds a great spot for the theme this time the Petit Jean River, AR.
The mighty Rio Grande
Paul, NA5N, near Socorro, New Mexico
A fun peaceful day "down on the river" both on-the-air and off. The bosque (trees along the river) served as a nice wind-break to keep things pleasant in spite of the spring winds. Gonna use this spot again.
If you've never seen the mighty Rio Grande ... Yup, this is it ... the biggest River in New Mexico with full spring run-off. Often runs dry in late summer. But, a scenic spot "in the field" to spend the day on the radio.
Drone photos of Paul's QRPTTF station on the banks of the Rio Grande using a KX2 and home-brew 20/40M inverted vee with fanned dipoles. The ultimate selfie ...selfie by drone.
Short drone video of the river
