Camping at Arches National Park!!
I rented us the group site at the campground and went up there last weekend to check it out! Its AMAZING! Honestly if we didn't even want to leave the campground we could get excellent photos, but of course we will be exploring all over! The park has so many amazing things to see that we definitely wont make it to everything but thats ok because if we enjoy this trip we can always come back again later! When its cooler and we will have more time.
Since its going to be scorching hot we will be focusing on shooting in the late afternoon evening on the first day and the morning of the second day! On the way home we can stop at this waterfall along the highway! It was frozen last weekend but hopefully will be running again by June 29th!
Our group site is big enough for 50 people but they only allow 7 vehicles to park. We might be able to push it to 8 or 9 if there are places to park. Parking is very limited!
Im only charging $12 a person for camping! This does not include gas, entrance fees, or food! You will have to cover that yourself! I suggest carpooling and splitting the cost with everyone in the car.
On our trip up there last weekend, it took about $50 in gas round trip (Toyota corolla) and its a $10 entrance fee per vehicle! If there are 4 people in the car you can all split that fee and it wont be too bad... About $15 per person.
Food and water:
Breakfast day 1: eat before we leave
lunch day 1: We will stop for lunch at a restaurant before entering Arches. (Most likely somewhere in green river or moab) You can bring a lunch or buy lunch at the place we stop to eat.
Dinner day 1: up yo you! I would love to have a BBQ or something while we all sit around the fire and talk about the day!
Breakfast day 2: up to you. Bringing like bagels or something simple is a good idea or you can go gourmet if you have all the proper camping cooking gear and make whatever breakfast you want!
then we pretty much shoot till it gets scorching hot and leave Arches. We can stop for food or you can eat something you brought again!
On our way headed home we can stop at the waterfall and do photos there!!
*******There are no showers at this campsite************* this is why its only one night lol!! ill be bringing a shower or something with me for sure. Its up to you to do whatever you like! i suggest bringing lots of water to pour on yourself lol its going to be hot!!
Models/ MUA usually dont pay at these meetups but since its a (field trip) kind of a deal you will have to pay to come to this one! Bring at least $15 to $20 for the gas and entrance fees and then of course bring food and water with you or money to eat at the places we will stop!
Here are some ideas for the arches shoot!
