Halloween Full Moon Hike

Halloween night of 10/31/20 offers a special treat of a full moon!  Where better to spend this evening than among the hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park!  Join us for this unique and incredible photography experience in Bryce Canyon while you create amazing images!

This Photo Tour is intended for those in average hiking shape and is not intended to be strenuous.  Please note that hiking at elevation is more difficult for many people.  We’ll be intentionally hiking slow and shooting often.  The goal is to shoot, hike and have a great experience!  Photography instruction will be provided as we photograph sunset and into the early night.

The planned hikes are not intended to be strenuous but 6-8 miles of hiking at an elevation of 8000 feet is more difficult than at sea level.  We’ll be hiking slow with many stops for photos and breaks.  If you are unable to complete the walk with the group, you may apply the booking towards a sunrise photo tour, reschedule or $100 will be refunded.  Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
