Location

We will meet at the Woolly Mammoth Parking Lot across from the Conoco Station.  From there we will carpool to Mt Evans where we will meet Dan Kunz, our guide and co-hike leader.
The event will take place at Mt Evans.  They have an entrance fee.  We will do our best to deal with that because it is on a per-car basis.  If you have a national parks pass, let me know at the meeting place.

Details

This event is for members of the CMC Photo Section.  Dan is a volunteer naturalist at Mt Evans and will show us around for photo opportunities.  These will include: active mountain goat families, including young and some adolescents.  There is a good chance of seeing big horn sheep.  He will also show us bristlecone pine groves including one tree that is over 1600 years old.  We will also see alpine wildflowers and great mountain views as well.  We should be on our way back in the afternoon and may stop at the Echo Lake Lodge for a refreshment and to discuss the photo challenges we encountered and how we attempted to resolve them.  Should be a great day. 

Notes

Bring lenses, if you have them, for the different natural phenomena we will see as described above.
This is a weekday event to avoid the crowds typically encountered on weekends.  I know that many cameras have different lenws capabilities built in.  Hope you can make it.
Email me with questions, if you have any.
