OCTOBER 6th - 9th, 2025
When morning light lands on the sculpted red rocks of Arches National Park they glow with unexpected intensity and color. The layered views from Canyonlands National Park spark the imagination, hinting something more, just a bit further.
Join us as we photograph the stunningly beautiful Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Dead Horse Point State Park.

EXPERIENCE: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.
GROUP SIZE: Target number of participants is 8.
EFFORT: Moderate - Our hike to Delicate Arch is what places this workshop in the moderate category. To reach Delicate Arch we hike about 1.5 miles, gain about 500 feet in elevation and face some exposure to heights. The arch is at 4,800 feet in elevation so most participants feel the effort is more comparable to gaining 1000 feet. Often walking or standing on uneven, sloped rocks. Sure footing is advised.
CONDITIONS: Mornings may be very cold, winter.
ELEVATION: The elevation range of our shooting locations is 4,100 to 6,000 ft. Proper hydration is a must at higher elevations.
AIR TRAVEL: Likely airport choices are Moab, UT, Grand Junction, CO and Salt Lake City, UT.
Driving time from Grand Junction, CO to Moab, UT is about 2 hours.
Driving time from Salt Lake City to Moab, UT is about 4 hours.
DRIVING CONDITIONS: Paved roads. A standard rental car should be sufficient. We prefer participants car pool with each other to limit our impact and get to know one another.
