Program #17947RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
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.
On this photography adventure, capture Old Faithful’s powerful skyward spray, a bison feeding in a meadow or the tremendous scope of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. As you record impressions of Yellowstone’s landscape, wildlife, geothermal features and historic structures, an instructor discusses composition, the use of light, proper exposure and more. Cap your week with a participant slide show and supportive critique.


Highlights

• Find your own vision of the iconic Yellowstone images as we visit the Old Faithful, Fishing Bridge and Canyon areas.
• Explore the Lamar Valley and Hayden Valley, each a wide-open wildlife haven where you can expect to see bison, elk, waterfowl, coyotes and more.
• Take your photography skills to the “next level.” Whether improving your exposure or composition — or both — you will acquire new skills you can take anywhere!

Program Notes

Elevations of 5,200-9,000 feet.

Activity Notes

Walking up to two miles a day on established boardwalks and trails and over uneven terrain with loose footing. Weather changes quickly. For serious beginner and experienced photographers.

Date Notes
2/1/2015
Because this is a winter date, the accommodations for 3 nights will be at the Best Western by Mammoth in Gardiner. This date will stay two nights at Old Faithful Snowlodge, will all accommodations inside the park. This is different than the spring and fall dates. This date only uses over the snow vehicles when going into the park, because this is all that is allowed in Yellowstone during winter months. The in park accommodations and use of over the snow vehicles accounts for the higher price. 2/8/2015
