Fitness Level: Longest Hike - Eagle Creek to Punch Bowl Falls, 4 miles RT, Elevation gain of 558 feet

Like any outdoor nature photography workshop, a reasonable degree of fitness is ideal. We will not be engaging in any strenuous physical activity. The majority of the locations we will visit can be easily accessed by road, and short 5-10 minute walks. A few locations we may visit require short hikes to access, no more than 4 miles round trip and featuring anywhere from 0-600ft of elevation gain. When photographing the coast, we may need to get our feet wet in order to get the best shots possible.

Accommodation: All participants are required to book their own lodging.

June 3-6, 2017 - Best Western Plus Hood River Inn.

June 7-10, 2017 - Forks Motel.
