anyone attending the Oct program?

Cindy Y Oct 29, 2013 at 11:42 PM

I'm thinking about this program next May, 2014. I would really like to read some reviews from people who attended the October, 2013 program.
Joan Balen Apr 30, 2014 at 07:34 AM

I just saw this post today. I went on this trip in Oct. and loved it. We went to some very inspiring photo places... lots of waterfalls, a couple of abandoned farms, and a place that is known as the Stonehenge of the US. Len, the instructor, is great... very encouraging. At the photo sites, everyone goes at their own pace. I loved the Shawnee Inn. It's a throwback to the very elegant hotels of the past. All our meals were held there except for lunches. Breakfasts were amazing, and the food at dinner was also very good. For lunch, after breakfast we went downstairs where a large array of cold cuts, breads, fruit, beverages, etc. were laid out. Everyone made and packed up their own sandwiches to bring along. Great idea, since we did not need to waste time at a restaurant for lunch. We usually went to a park with picnic tables and had our lunch there. We had a free afternoon and i took that time to visit the Lakota Wolf Preserve... amazing! I got some great shots of the wolves. I highly recommend going there if you have the opportunity. The leaders gave us the info about it, and how to make a reservation. I highly recommend this trip for any photo enthusiast.
