NOTE: This is a MID WEEK EVENT!
We will meet for an (optional) dinner in Lee Vining at the famous "Whoa Nellie Deli" aka the Mobil station at Tioga Road and 395. Dinner will be from 6:30 on. We will leave the restaurant at around 7:20 PM.
Over dinner we'll talk about where we'll be headed, then catch sunset on Mono lake followed by two planned (and possibly more unplanned locations). We know, for example, where we can find some less well known formations around Mono Lake.
We recommend that you have a high clearance vehicle. 4WD or AWD is recommended, however the area is passable with most passenger vehicles - this is just not the place or event to bring your low-slung Lamborghini, but if you do, don't give Eric the keys :-) We can arrange carpools at Whoa Nellie if needed.
Sunset is at about 8:03 PM
Moonrise is 1:56 AM the following day (28% illumination)
One location will require about a one mile round trip hike from the parking area over mostly level ground. The other location is a much shorter hike.
Steven and Eric will be bringing lighting equipment to do some light painting. Weather permitting we'll have views to the north, and the Milky Way to the south. Please be sure to check the weather for Lee Vining and be prepared with appropriate dress. It can be very chilly with wind at night even when it is as much as 100 degrees during the day.
Minimum attendance is 4 - including two instructors.
We won't be going here, but to an even more interesting area...
NOTE: We expect this will be most appealing to Bristlecone Pine Workshop participants.
Cancellations less than 7 days from the event are non-refundable.
Cancellations more than one week before the event are refundable up to 50%.

Weather is unpredictable. We feel confident that we can show you compelling photography opportunities in all but the worst weather. Since we cannot control the weather, however, we cannot be responsible for the result.
