About the Workshop
Learn how to photograph fall colors and waterfalls from one of the best places on earth to do it from. We'll hike to 2 waterfalls (1 of which you can walk behind). If time allows, we'll hike to a third waterfall (easy 0.3 mile hike). This workshop will be during the week and early in the day to avoid crowds.
This workshop includes about 2.5 miles of hiking with elevation gain and stairs involved.
Steady rain in the forecast will postpone this workshop. Alternate dates are 10/21 or 10/25.
