ARIZONA FALL COLORS TOUR - October 5-13

Sedona Red Rocks.jpg

This fall, I will be leading a group of no more than eight participating photographers on a tour of northern Arizona. We will be photographing in Sedona, the Petrified Forest, Canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley, and in Page, where there will be options to photograph in Antelope Canyon, at Horseshoe Bend, and on Lake Powell.

Sedona is, in many minds, one of the most beautiful locations in America. The land of the red rocks is no more photogenic than in October, when the cottonwood trees are adorned in bright yellow leaves. Canyon de Chelly also lights up in fall colors each October.

Lodging provided from Saturday, October 5 through Saturday, October 12, ground transportation, meals, and professional photographic instruction included. (Lodging accommodations double occupancy 10/5-10/13, single occupancy available for an additional $750.) 

Except for those arriving late Saturday evening, October 5, participants will meet for an orientation dinner. We will leave Sunday morning at 8:00 for Sedona, returning to Phoenix Saturday afternoon, October 12.  

Price: $2,700, does not include airfare, alcoholic beverages, sales tax.  Deposit of $500, fully refundable before August 15, 2019. Balance due September 1, 2019. Cancellation notification must be given in writing before August 15, 2019. All major credit cards accepted. (Trip insurance is certainly worth considering.)

A note about activity level:  Consideration will be given to each participant’s desired level of activity. With two guides leading a group of no more than eight participant photographers, we may divide into two groups when doing so best serves each participant’s desires and needs.
