Zion National Park has a dramatic but quiet beauty all its own. Zion offers an amazing variety of subjects to photograph this time of year from the grand scenics of the Watchman and Court of the Patriarchs to the more intimate scenes along the Virgin River. You'll be able to photograph the colorful cottonwoods and maples set against the sheer canyon walls rising high above the valley. We’ll even plan to hike and photograph the amazing Narrows of the Virgin River, one of the best hikes in all the world. We’ll also be exploring Bryce Canyon, just up the road from Zion. Bryce is full of amazing canyon views along the rim that reveal the special glowing hoodoos that make Bryce such a compelling photographic location .

Our first base of operations will be in Bryce Canyon, Utah at the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park and from there we'll move on to stay overnight in Springdale, Utah at Zion National Park. We'll e-mail you a detailed itinerary so you can make your hotel reservations.

Fitness Level:
You'll need a moderate level of fitness to tackle some of the hiking and challenging weather conditions of the region. We’ll plan to hike the Narrows of the Virgin River and explore some of the higher elevations of Zion and Bryce. Bryce Canyon requires adjustment to the 8000 elevation.
