It is with great excitement that we are announcing a brand new photography trip here at Backcountry Journeys! In continuing our tradition of exploring the vastness of Utah’s canyons – next March we will be taking a small group of adventurous photographers to photograph both Arches & Canyonlands National Parks in Utah. We have scheduled this trip to coincide with optimal lighting for photographing Delicate Arch, Landscape Arch & Mesa Arch while also pursuing intimate photos at unique locations in Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. Although not particularly difficult this will be a “hiker” trip due to some rugged terrain involved in getting to some of the photo spots. If you’ve been to Zion & Bryce it’s time to get back to the Colorado Plateau and explore the other side of Utah! This trip begins and ends in Moab, Utah and we are running this trip beginning in March of 2019. We hope to see you out there!
