ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

the program is wonderful for photographers.. the food is horrible - 2 restaurant meals total, sack lunch everyday & one sack dinner. HJ's is fine other than the fact that there is nothing to do nearby and no restaurant -- 1 dinner was from Pizza Hut and others catered by college cafeteria

This is a wonderful, well organized program. Most exciting to me was the buffalo round up. It felt like we were in the movies, or better yet, in the old west. Beautiful landscapes and wildlife and time to photograph it all.

The time spent in the Black Hills area of South Dakota was absolutely fantastic. Having the opportunity to photograph the magnificent scenery of Mt. Rushmore, Spearfish Canyon, the Badlands, and the American Bison during the annual round-up was the thrill of a lifetime. Every American should take the opportunity to experience the historic landmarks and landscapes of this part of the USA!
