Photo Walks with a Ranger

Photo Walks with a Ranger

A new ranger program will offer a unique way to experience the park with a photo walk for beginning and intermediate photographers. Join volunteer ranger and experienced photographer Leandra Melgreen Lewis for a walk to discover photo opportunities in Petrified Forest National Park.

Photo techniques will be discussed with suggested exercises to open up new visual opportunities for point and shoot and digital SLR photographers.

Come prepared! Exposure to elements may include mud, ice, cold weather and the sun; wear appropriate layered clothing and footwear, bring sun protection, food, and water. Bring camera manuals, tripods and cable release.

Photo walk locations are subject to change based on weather conditions. Some walks are not on trails, with possible muddy conditions. All walks are easy to moderate. Walks range from one to three miles and will last up to 3 hrs.
