Bryce Canyon

Full Moon Photo Walk

A monthly Photo Walk in Bryce Canyon National Park timed to photograph the rising moon at sunset.  We’ll finish by hiking among hoodoos under the moonlight! Join us for an incredible photography experience in Bryce Canyon and create amazing images!

This Photo Walk 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 for those interested.
