National Zoo Photowalk

Let's meet up at the Zoo for an early fall photo walk on 9/29! The zoo is a great place to find lots of inspiration and practice in wildlife photography (and taking photos through glass and other obstacles!).

Ideally, I'd love to be there early, but parking is limited and the metro starts around 7:30 (not counting any delays), so lets meet up for 9 at the front entrance on Connecticut Avenue in between the two lions (more toward the southernmost lion, which is the first you get to when walking up from Woodley Park Metro stop).

What you'll need:

1. Camera and tripod (if desired)
2. Good walking shoes/sneakers
3. Water/snacks if desired.

Plan on exploring the zoo for a few hours and we can grab a bite to eat afterwards if desired.

    Hi folks. The weather looks great for Sunday and I'm looking forward to leading my first photo walk. I added the zoo website link in the description if anyone needed it and also learned there will be a Music Festival at the Zoo starting at 11am on Sunday, so should be a great day with the animals.

    Darn it, I'd love to go to this, but I have a friend in town that day so must play hostess instead. Next time!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
