Winter in Yosemite Scouting Workshop
Mountain, Valley, Snow
DATES: FEBRUARY 24 - March,1 2019
LOCATION: DEATH VALLEY, El Portal, CA
INSTRUCTOR(S): JOSEPH ROSSBACH
Not just a great valley, but a shrine to human foresight, the strength of granite, the power of glaciers, the persistence of life, and the tranquility of the High Sierra.
First protected in 1864, Yosemite National Park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more. At this time of the year, the area is almost guaranteed to be covered in snow and in late winter the waterfalls really begin to flow again. We will also have a chance to photograph the famous Firetail Falls when Horsetail Falls is illuminated at sunset. Joe will be keeping the workshop limited to only 5 photographers for maximum flexibility. Participants myst be advanced and be prepared to hike, climb, drive and spend long hours in the field shooting and scouting.
