DETAILS

A WORD ABOUT FITNESS

We will be doing a considerable amount of walking & hiking, primarily on the dunes (in sand), and if Medano Creek is flowing, through 1-5 inches of water to access the dunefields. The highest dunes are 800ft tall, and while we may not be hiking to the top, we will be doing a lot of uphill walking on the dunes to get to the ideal photo locations. Please remember hiking in sand is more strenuous than hiking on dirt trails, so please consider your health and fitness level when booking this workshop. A medical waiver/release will need to be signed as a condition of the workshop attendance.
