American West Photography Safaris

San Juan Mtns (Colorado) Autumn Safari

Monday, Sep 28-Oct 2, 2020   $1875  ($1500)  


For those not traveling with me we usually meetup in Glenwood Springs, along Interstate 70. If you intend to fly-in to the safari or back from it, I would suggest Grand Junction, CO as the arrival/departure airport, both for the price and car rentals. Weather is usually cool, but can change suddenly, so I suggest typical fall high elevation clothing: gloves, knit hat, cold weather coat, thermal underwear, boots, etc.  We begin by shooting Maroon Bells, before traveling to the Crystal Mill, then southwest to the San Juan Mountains around Telluride and Ouray. We spend time exploring many of the well-maintained dirt roads into the national forests as well as shooting the iconic Red Mountain Mining District between Ouray and Silverton - see the galleries below.  This safari is limited to 7 photographers.

There is an additional 10% discount off this safari if you book the Yellowstone Autumn Wildlife Safari (LINK) from October 4 to October 8 as well. The additional 10% off applies to both safaris.
