Eastern Sierra Tag-A-Long (Meet Up)

Tuesday-Friday, October 24-27, 2017
The Eastern Sierra's is a rugged, magical place, full of opportunity to take photographs of another worldly landscape. The concept of this meet up  is to go where the color and opportunity takes us. All participants are responsible for their own accommodations, meals, transportation, etc. We will meet in Lee Vining October 24th in the late afternoon at Niclely's after you take care of your accommodations. We meet up the following morning before sunrise to venture into Lundy Canyon (or where the color is rumored to be) and we chase the light. Tioga and June Lake offer other color opportunities.  We intend to visit Mono Lake sunrise and sunset on both shores and Bodie (time permitting). Fee is $100 by August 30th to hold your spot. Send your check to 484-B Washington Street 311, Monterey CA or email me at with any questions. Minimum of 8. Check will be returned if minimum is not met.
