This private photo tour will include some walking and cool mornings. The high elevation of the park should be considered for those with any health concerns or those who live at lower elevations. Ideal for beginner to advanced photographers, this custom tour will provide opportunities to photograph moose in willow bottoms, rivers, set against the Rocky Mountains and forests. Dawn has been photographing moose in these areas for nearly 20 years and knows where to look and what behaviors to watch for to capture beautiful images of these massive mammals.
