Saturday, September 28th
Depart Newark Airport (EWR) to Las Vegas, where we'll pick up our vehicle and drive to our first location: Zion National Park.
*Airfare is not included, but the AIP tour leaders will be flying out from EWR (time TBA).

Saturday, September 28th - Monday, September 30th
Zion National Park is a paradise for landscape photographers with glowing orange, red, and pink textured sandstone formations that interplay with the lush vegetation provided by weeping walls and the emerald waters of the Virgin River. Visitors are surrounded by the majestic sandstone peaks and formations, and views from the rims above are even more stunning.

Monday, September 30th - Wednesday, October 2nd
Antelope Canyon is located in the Lake Powell area and is one of the most photographed slot canyons in the United States. It was formed by water rushing through the rock over the course of millions of years. This southwestern natural wonder has two parts: the deep, yet narrow Upper Antelope Canyon (also known as Spiral Rock Arches) and the Lower Antelope Canyon (Hasdeztwazi). Both canyons are set on Navajo land as part of the Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park. We have booked 3 high-level "photographers only" tours (required on tribal land) to Upper Antelope, Lower Antelope, and to the Horseshoe Bend area.

Wednesday, October 2nd - Friday, October 4th
Utah's Grand Staircase Escalante is yet another photographer's dream! Its vast, wild, and remote landscape is packed with unique photo opportunities. Some of the main features include expansive colorful slick rock sandstone, slot canyons, hoodoos, and fossils.

Friday, October 4th - Sunday, October 6th
Bryce Canyon provides spectacular scenery in a visual wonderland. Despite being the smallest of Utah’s national parks, this area offers endless beauty and breathtaking panoramic views. We’ll shoot the Amphitheatre from the best angles while exploring the hoodoos striped in brilliant colors. Nowhere in the world are these towering spires found as abundantly as they are at Bryce.

Sunday, October 6th
After a morning shoot, we'll return to Las Vegas to catch our flights back home.
