ALMO (August 19, 2019) – City of Rocks National Reserve announces the autumn photo workshop and safari to be held beginning 1 p.m. on Friday, September 27, and concluding at noon on Sunday, September 29. This annual event typically coincides with peak colors at the reserve.

The weekend kicks off with a digital photography workshop for beginners (those wanting to learn how to use their camera's manual features and basic composition). The safari sets out on Friday at 5:30 p.m. to capture the seasonal colors illuminated by the setting sun, and then resumes early morning on Saturday to photograph the sunrise. New locations will be featured throughout the three-day event. Photo-shoots are followed by indoor editing sessions.

The Safari is open to all skill levels, but preregistration is required and group size is limited. Registration opens at 9 a.m. Tuesday, August 27, and it is expected to go quickly. Registrations will be taken only by phone (208) 824-5911, by email: Wallace_Keck@partner.nps.gov, or in person at the visitor center in Almo.

There is no fee, and participants arrange their own lodging/camping and meals. The safari is semi-strenuous, and weather can be unpredictable, so registrants should be ready to commit to the adventure.
