Schedule of Events

There are no specific events planned. After meet up we will be on our own as to where we choose to shoot. We plan to meet up at 11:30 and proceed to lunch as a group. The place is yet to be determined pending interest in the group lunch.


Your gear choices are determined by what you plan to shoot. Opportunities present will call for a full range of lenses from ultra-wide to super telephotos. The varying lighting conditions can call for ND filters for the hopefully bright sun to tripods for dark interior shots and everything in between.

Other Tips

Much of the park is fully exposed to the sun. Sun protection both from clothing and sunscreen is called for. Bug spray also recommended.
