Conservation Photography Overnight Excursion
In The Spotlight: Lassen National Park
Gary Sharlow, Photographer, Education Manager
Saturday & Sunday June 13,[masked] from 8am to 8pm
Lassen Volcanic National Park is home to smoking fumaroles, meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes, and numerous volcanoes. Jagged peaks tell the story of its eruptive past while hot water continues to mold the land. Lassen Volcanic offers opportunities to discover the wonder and mysteries of volcanoes and hot water for visitors willing to explore the undiscovered. The remarkable hydrothermal features in Lassen Volcanic National Park include roaring fumaroles (steam and volcanic-gas vents), thumping mud pots, boiling pools, and steaming ground. Water from rain and snow that falls on the highlands of the park feed the hydrothermal system. Once deep underground, the water is heated by a body of hot or molten rock beneath Lassen Peak. Rising hot water boils to form boiling pools and mud pots. Super-heated steam reaches the surface through fractures in the earth to form fumaroles such as those found at Bumpass Hell and Sulphur Works. In this two day excursion you will be joined by a professional photographer who will guide you to some the most photographic spots on the mountain while also helping you learn the inner workings of your camera and offering tips on how to create stunning nature images. This trip will be kept to a small group and you will be driven to the trail heads by your guide. Leave your car at the lodging grounds and kick back for a full day of guided adventure.
Your instructor will be lodging at Hat Creek Resort. You are welcome to book cabins, tent sites or bring your own RV. You will be contacted by your guide before the trip so that you know how to meet up and where to board the van on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 8am. At the end of the day on Sunday, you will be brought back to the meeting location.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
