Rocky Mtn Goats / Rocky Mtn NP Safari             Monday, August 26-29    $1200  ($960)

 


In 2018 we arrived on Mt. Evans under beautiful conditions.  Goats, bighorn and pika, marmots and Brown-capped Rosy-finches - were our targets. During the night a small storm blew through, leaving Mt. Evans under a few inches of snow, 32 degrees, with a 50-60 mph wind whipping through. So yes, conditions can change. The paved road goes right up to 14,200 feet, the highest paved road in North America. The shooting was everything we had hoped, and the change in weather gave us another look to our images. After Mt. Evans we travel a short distance to Rocky Mountain National Park and work the roads from Grand Lake to Estes Park. We missed the bighorn this year, but found some huge bull elk exhibiting rutting behavior, as well as moose.

Reservations

We meet in Colorado at the chosen hotel, last year (2018) in Georgetown, and photograph the goats on Mt.Evans (14,271 feet) for a day and a half, followed by a day and a half photographing Rocky Mountain National Park.  We stay in Grand Lake for that.
