Tuesday, August 30 to September 3   $1500

For this safari we travel to two great locations - Mt. Evans for Rocky Mountain Goats, Bighorn Sheep, and Pika - and to Rocky Mountain National Park for bighorn sheep, elk, and black bears.  Mt. Evans has the highest paved road leading to its summit in North America, 14,271 feet.  The goats feast on alpine plants and walk unhindered all around us.  There are opportunities to shoot the nanny goats with their kids, as well as single billy goats.  The views are spectacular all around, even distant Denver can be seen from the top.  At this height the wind can be very strong and it can get extremely cold so layers and a warm outer coat are a must.  Physical exertion at this elevation can lead to some dizziness and/or headaches, so come prepared with ibuprofen.  We do some limited walking.

After two days shooting Mt. Evans we travel a short distance to Rocky Mountain National Park and spend two days shooting there.  We stay in Grand Lake just outside the park's south entrance.  The forests are full of bull elk and moose preparing for the rut, while the high mountain ridges have bighorn sheep.  In 2019 we really had great battling bull elk encounters with pre-rutting elk.  Both these locations give us opportunities for grand landscape vistas and alpine lakes. This safari is limited to 6 photographers.

Reservations

If you don't travel with me we meet in Colorado at the chosen hotel, in 2019 we stayed in Idaho Springs on I-70, and photograph the goats on Mt. Evans first (14,271 feet) followed by photography in Rocky Mountain National Park.  We stay in Grand Lake for that with access just two miles away to the south entrance to RMNP. 

Difficulty Level:  MODERATE due to elevation
