This spring/summer safaris are both a
wildlife chase (black bears, songbirds) as well as a landscape shoot. In
other words, we will shoot anything cool we see. There could
be mosquitoes, so citrus
based repellants are a must. We do some walking on this safari, usually several
miles on relatively flat trails - so comfortable boots are a must.
We check some meadows in the morning, take a break for lunch, then
usually walk to at least 1 or 2 meadows in the afternoon. The
mornings are cool, warming to pleasant temps in the afternoon.
We usually go into Lodgepole for lunch, but you are welcome to bring
your lunch if you want.
We can meet at my home in Tulare or at a hotel in Visalia at 6am, or in Three Rivers on Highway 198 at
7am in the Pizza Factory parking lot. From there we travel up
to the Giant Grove and photograph throughout the grove and close by
meadows. We will stop for lunch, then shoot again in the
afternoon. We will photograph everything that looks good:
black bears, mule deer bucks,
