Good photo ops for columbine should be available near the trailhead and farther back along the canyon. The afternoon will be spent at Red Rock Crossing where we will stay for sunset. This is one of the most recognized sunset locations in Arizona.
June 12: We will be driving to Schnebly Hill but we will need another high clearance vehicle if enough people attend. We finish the morning with some photo ops at Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village before lunch at the El Ricon resturant in the village which will conclude the outing.
There are many hotels available in Sedona from which to choose. Contact Lynn Thompson for additional information.
October 11 - 15/16. Moab, Utah. This is a re-scheduling of the May outing. Depending on how long folks wish to stay the shoot may be extended to the 16th. This will give us the opportunity to shoot fall color in the La Sal Mountains in addition to the normal photo ops in the Canyonlands area. Contact Nancy Sams for more information.
Novembet 9th. The ACCC Fall roundup. Saguaro Camera Club is the sponsor. Volunteers are needed beginning in September. Contact Lynn Thompson for more information and/or to sign up.
