Wow. The San Juan Mountains in Colorado
are amazing. We begin the first morning by shooting Maroon
Bells, before traveling to the Crystal Mill in the afternoo, then southwest to the
San Juan Mountains around Telluride, Ouray, and Durango. We spend time exploring many of the
well-maintained dirt roads into the San Juan National Forest as well
as shooting the iconic Red Mountain Mining District between Ouray
We finish the final day in Mesa Verde National
Park, photographing the Cliff Palace and other Indian Ruins, and
hopefully the huge mule deer bucks and wild horses in the park.
For those not traveling with me we usually meetup in Glenwood
Springs, Colorado 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 airfare price and car
The deposit is 50% via check, Paypal, Venmo, or credit card,
and the balance is due halfway between the deposit date and the
safari date unless you are booking within 3 months, then full
payment is due.
I've never had a bad weather day on this
safari, but I'm looking forward to it when it finally comes.
I've spent my 40-year wildlife
photography career shooting in the American West. The first
24 years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. I lead safaris to the best locations, at the
best times, during peak wildlife activity periods. What a
rush it has been.
Difficulty Level :
literally are shooting all day and have to force ourselves
to stop for meals, it is that good. The light is never
bad, and if you get tired of the color, then there are the
mining ruins everywhere, from the Red Mtn Mining
District to Silverton.
