A Winter's Morning Photo Hike

Join us as we expire the Bloomington Ferry Unit of the Minnesota Valley National WIldlife Refuge.

Our hike will begin during civil twilight. The cool blue light during twilight provides additional interest to winter scenes. We will have an opportunity to capture the sunrise. We will have a brief discussion of winter shooting techniques and then quickly head out on the trail. Bring your camera and a tripod, and dress for the weather.

This is always a fun hike, as we are able to access areas typically inaccessible during other times of the year.

    Could someone give me a ride from Loring Park? Thanks!

      If you still need a ride, I can pick you up. You are not too far from me and I know the feeling of not being able to go to an event because you don't have a ride.

      Thanks Mike! I'd love to go, but something is seriously wrong with my hip. Major radiating pain, so a long walk isn't a good idea right now. Maybe next time?!

    I may be there, depending on the weather. Being from Texas, I'm not yet prepared to dress for the below zero weather.

    Sounds enchanting. If the "Polar Vortex" doesn't rear it's frozen head, I will be there too.
