The Crystal Mill is a classic Autumn landscape destination | San Juan Mountains Autumn Landscape Safari

Landscape Photography is about Locations and Light: Colorado is a target Rich Location

Safari Information Reservations Guide: Brent Paull
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 and Silverton. 

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 rentals.  

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.   Link 

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 : Easy

We 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.
