Wild Horses & Mountain Landscapes
A thriving herd of hundreds of wild horses roams the floor and hills of the Adobe Valley. Situated between the snow-clad slopes of two major mountain ranges and blessed with a thriving equine population, the Adobe Valley is rich with opportunities to make memorable wildlife and landscape images. Ken will serve as your photography instructor and trip leader for this unique adventure offered by Rock Creek Pack Station as we photograph these wild horses and the stunningly picturesque environment in which they live. RCPS’ expert guides will lead the way and educate us on the natural history, behavior and herd dynamics of equines in the wild. No prior riding experience is required but this trip requires a basic level of fitness including the ability to walk at high altitudes for several hours at a stretch. If you have any questions about your fitness to tackle this adventure, please contact RCPS.
