Come join a ranger to see the first rays of the morning sun push over the Sacramento Mountains. This early morning porogram is focused on amateur or novice photographers. Rangers will share tips on taking great photos in the early morning light while allowing participants to capture their memories on camera.
The program is scheduled only twice a year. Reservations are required. To register for the hike, simply download the registration form and return it to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax at (575) 479-1116.
The registration period will open two weeks before each scheduled hike and the registration form will be available for download during that time until the hike is full. Once capacity has been met, the form will no longer be available.
Participation is limited to 20 individuals. Group size per reservation is limited to no more than 5 people. Children 10 years of age and older are welcome to participate.
Please bear in mind that these events can be very popular and often fill up within just a few hours after registration opens. Reservations are taken in the order in which they are received. To improve your chances of obtaining a place on the hike, submit your form as early as possible. The form will usually be uploaded to the site by 8 am on the day registration opens.
