For the third consecutive year, Mike Forsberg, Dave Showalter and John Rawinski will be joining us for this outstanding Photo Trip at Zapata Ranch. Each year approximately 27,000 Sandhill Cranes migrate through the San Luis Valley, one of the most ecologically and geologically diverse landscapes in the world. World renowned photographers, Michael Forsberg and Dave Showalter, along with expert naturalist and birder John Rawinski provide you the opportunity for behind-the-scenes access to this natural phenomenon.
Join us on an intimate journey into public and private lands and wildlife preserves where Mike and Dave will share state of the art photo skills, while John will share his unparalleled knowledge for the area and the Sandhill Cranes. You will leave with a portfolio of beautiful photos (focused primarily on cranes, but also inclusive of other wildlife, landscape and bison), first-hand knowledge of this magnificent landscape and the management, history and conservation work that is being done to preserve it.
Guests will stay at the Zapata Lodge and enjoy meals cooked by our gourmet chef, Mike Rosenberg. Don’t wait to reserve your spot for this one-of-a-kind opportunity! Space is limited to 12 participants. Cost: $1,700pp includes all meals, activities, lodging and instruction.
