American West Photography Safaris

Southern Utah Nature Safari

Monday, November 4-7    $1200  ($960)

Last year we hit the motherlode of color, shooting on the peak color day for the Rocky Mountain Maple trees.  It lasted exactly one day, and the next day the ground began to be covered with rocky mountain maple leaves with every gust of wind and rain.  But, it was a great day to be out shooting.  Golden cottonwood trees along the Virgin River both inside and outside the park, as well as Gambel's Oak, and Ash trees add color to monumental vistas and landscapes that are in and around the park.  I lived in St. George for 5 years and know every back road and scenic vantage point in this southern Utah area. This safari is a mix of landscapes and wildlife.

Depending on timing and weather, we could also photograph in Bryce Canyon as well as local areas such as Gooseberry Mesa, Cedar Mountain, Snow Canyon State Park, and the Virgin River bottoms. As you can see from the photos this is also a great wildlife shoot, with rutting Desert Bighorn Sheep and Mule Deer putting on a show. We may shoot Monument Valley as well.


We meet in Hurricane, Utah at the mouth of Zion National Park on Sunday, November 3. The weather can change so dress in layers, though we should have cool mornings and pleasant afternoons.  Light shooting gloves as well as gardening knee pads can make the photography much easier and more comfortable on the sandstone rocks. Hotels are reasonable.
