Weminuche Wilderness Horsepack Photography Adventure
Weminuche Wilderness Photography Adventure
July 17-21, 2017 Ride the Rockies with us!
We will once again ride with Over the Hill Outfitters to their high camp in the spectacular Weminuche Wilderness. This is not just a photography workshop. It is a life experience!
At just a whisker under 500,000 acres, the Weminuche is the largest wilderness in the state of Colorado and roughly two-thirds the size of Rhode Island. The wilderness designation prohibits motorized vehicles of any kind. That means 4 magical days without cars, trucks, ATVs, motorcycles or even bicycles.
To see this majestic country, you either hike it or hoof it!
This is an unparalleled opportunity to photograph alpine wildflowers, rugged mountain landscapes, waterfalls, glacial lakes, and, of course, authentic wranglers, camp scenes, and horses.
Our guides will pamper us with all meals, tents and sleeping gear, Don’t worry about having to skimp on your camera kit. Pack horses will carry our gear for us. Yay!
Everyone gets their own tent or you can share with friends or family. All meals provided from Monday lunch through Friday lunch.
You need not be an experienced rider to participate. Randy has a stable of gentle, well-trained horses. But, then again, if you really don’t like to ride, I’m sure Randy can rustle up a horse that really doesn’t like to be ridden.
The camp is at 10,500 feet above sea level. Throughout the week we may ascend to as high as 12,500′ affording us some of the best views in Colorado! The US Forest Service restricts the number of heartbeats on a guided pack trip to 25; which includes horses, wranglers and photographers-everybody… So, this workshop is limited to only 8 participants.
This workshop is booked directly through the outfitter, here’s the link: Oh yeah, I wanna ride!!
