GRAND STAIRCASE/ESCALANTE/CAPITOL REEF PHOTO/HIKER TOUR
October 21-26, 2018
Airport: Salt Lake City, Utah (SLC)
**See itinerary below.
Why Take This Photo Tour With Us?
*Fall color and red rock monoliths—photographing off the beaten path sites, not hard, long hikes.
*We’ll take you to the scenic sites most visitors miss—with a local guide.
*Lodging, meals and transportation are included.
There are very few roads in both parks, so reaching the most scenic locations will require a bit of hiking. Some hikes will be little more than relaxing walks. Others will be legitimate half-day hikes. In another incarnation, Cathy and I led hiking tours in this area, so we are the ideal leaders for this photo tour. We know the best combination of most accessible/most scenic locations that will optimize our photographic opportunities.
Day 1: Travel from SLC to Escalante (about 4 hours). Go out to photograph Grand Staircase/Escalante in the afternoon.
Day 2: Hike to a photo destination. Lunch while we are out there. We will be out a good portion of the day. Move to Boulder Town when we return (about 45 min.).
Day 3: Short hike to photo destination, relax during middle of day, short hike to photo destination in afternoon.
Day 4: Easy hike in morning. Move to Torrey (about an hour). Go out to photograph in afternoon.
