Our Grand Staircase-Escalante NM 3 day Photo Safari features some of the best landscape photography opportunities in the Southwestern USA.
The 1.7 million acres and thousands of miles of dirt roads in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument hide some of the most scenic places in North America from the buses and crowds. This is America’s outback, some of the last land in America ever to be surveyed and formally named. Adventure like the locals do! Let us show your group the endless outdoor adventure and landscape photography. This tour is much like our Photographer’s Dream Tour only we slow it down and give this place the time it deserves. We hike more, explore several slot canyons, hike to the ridge tops for cool views of the Cockscomb, and frolic on the multicolor sandstone monolith, Yellow Rock. We visit hoodoos, narrows, fossilized oyster beds, rock art sites, fuzzy rock, Candyland, and the Paria Townsite/Movie Set. Get acquainted with the hidden Southern Utah!
All in all you get one of the best family outdoor adventure tour values in the Southwestern USA. This tour includes:
-Lots more time to enjoy this vast wilderness
