If you’re going to go camping, who better to lead you on an expert tour of the great wide open than man’s best friend and original resident of nature... your dog?

From the looks of this popular new Instagram account, “Camping with Dogs," there are many reasons why dogs are the perfect camping partners, and all of them photograph well. The page currently has over 83,000 followers and contains many gorgeous/funny photos of people taking advantage of the wilderness with their pups. 

According to the Daily Mail, Camping with Dogs was started by Ryan Carter, a dog owner and head of a social media agency in Nashville, who is now "in the process of designing an app that lets owners see which parks and trails are dog-friendly for future adventures."
