About Weather
Weather can range from a low of 50° F at night to a high of 85° F during the day. There will be a definite chance of rain during our workshop.

Important things to keep in mind:
•Bring clothing suited for a variety of temperatures, from cool mornings to warm afternoons. Also be prepared for potential rain and for changing weather.
•We will be photographing from 4000 to 7000’ elevation. Normally, the only problem you can expect is a slight shortness of breath. However, the higher elevation is something to keep in mind if you live at sea level or you are prone to encountering physical difficulties at higher elevations.
•We will be using 4-WD SUVs for this workshop. A passenger car will not work because we will be driving on many dirt roads where we will need high clearance and traction that an SUV provides.

Payments
A deposit of 25% of the total cost of the trip is required upon sign-up to secure a spot. The remaining balance is due 60-days prior to the workshop. We strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance.
