I’m in the early stages of planning a possible four day whitewater rafting and photography workshop trip through Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park to take place in May or June, 2011. The trip would include all meals, guided boats, tents, etc. plus all the usual photo workshop stuff, i.e. instruction in the field, sunrise/sunset shoots, image critiques. We’d also do some day hikes to interesting Native American ruins within some truly stunning side canyons. At the conclusion of the trip we’d fly over Canyonlands en route back to Moab in a small plane.
At this point I’m just trying to gauge interest in the trip. Pricing isn’t firm yet but will most likely be in the neighborhood of $2,500/person, all-inclusive. This would be an awesome opportunity for a full-immersion experience that will require some degree of fitness and will provide you with opportunities to make images in a remote desert wilderness not often photographed from river level. Cliche as it may sound, this is a once in a lifetime type trip.
I’m interested in hearing your thoughts and comments about this kind of trip. Is the approximate price of $2,500/person fair? What questions and concerns would you have? What would you expect to get out of it? Is this something you would be seriously interested in? Please take a moment to leave a comment!
