Because this is a photo tour, the priority of this trip will be focused on making the best photographs you can possibly make. This means we’ve structured the itinerary to coincide with the best lighting, i.e., sunrise and sunset shooting. For this tour and time of year, sunrise is at 6:45 AM and sunset is around 6 PM. We will be getting up for sunrise on both days, around 5 AM to account for drive time. We will be providing you with boxed breakfasts, but you will have the opportunity for a more complete breakfast later on in the morning if you would like.
