Yellowstone National Park Back Country Photo
5 nights and 6 days
September 9-14, 2012
If Yellowstone National Park, horseback riding, superb photography, terrific food, comfortable wilderness camping, Yellowstone’s most spectacular waterfalls, soaking in natural hot springs, and funloving wrangler guides sounds like a great time, then this is the perfect adventure for you. You’ll see and photograph spectacular scenery, colorful meadows carpeted with wildflowers, and thundering waterfalls. You’ll get plenty of in the field photo instruction from John & Barbara Gerlach, great conversations with the group members, and exciting stories (some of them true) from our highly experienced wranglers. We’ll fill our days leisurely riding horses to special places where wonderful photo opportunities abound. Riding horses is a relaxing and quiet way to enjoy the back country in a way that few people ever experience.
Join us in exploring the southwestern corner of Yellowstone National Park, the area officially known as the Bechler Region, but those who have visited this area know why most call it “Cascade Corner.”
Lee Metcalf wilderness
5 nights and 6 days
July 22-27, 2012
If high mountain alpine country, horseback riding, superb photography, terrific food, relaxing wilderness camping, colorful alpine wildflowers, breath-taking mountain peaks reflecting in crystal clear mountain lakes at 9,000 feet, and fun-loving wrangler guides sounds like a great time, then this is the perfect adventure for you. You’ll photograph spectacular landscapes, colorful meadows carpeted with wildflowers, and photogenic brooks cascading over rocky talus slopes. You’ll receive plenty of photo instruction in the field from John and Barbara Gerlach, great conversations with the group members, and exciting stories - some of them true - from our experienced wranglers. We’ll fill our days leisurely riding horses - often above the treeline - to magical places where wonderful photo opportunities abound.
The rugged and incredibly scenic Hilgard Basin lies about 10 miles north of Quake Lake and 15 miles northwest of West Yellowstone, Montana. This secluded basin is our primary destination because it is dotted with small lakes and tiny rocky creeks cascading over talus slopes. Although our trip runs in late July, it’s spring in the Hilgard Basin.
