Iconic Landscapes - Devils Tower
Photograph America’s first national monument, Devils Tower. Located about an hour west of Spearfish South Dakota in the northeastern corner of Wyoming, Devil’s Tower rises over 1,200 feet above the Belle Fourche River and is surrounded by pine forest and grasslands.
The workshop will concentrate on the breathtaking views of the tower, the surrounding landscape, the local wildlife and with luck, the rock climbers that frequent Devil’s Tower. A visit to Devil’s Tower is an unparallel photographic opportunity.
Low to Moderate. There are a variety of optional hiking options. Participants can take hikes that are as easy or hard as they wish. There is a 1.5 mile hiking path around the base of the mountain which will be the main focus of the workshop. The entire length need not be traversed.
Things to know
Participants driving their own vehicles are responsible for National Park entry fees into the Monument. The standard daily use fee is $10 per vehicle. Annual and senior park passes are also accepted. This workshop is about 45 minutes from BHSU at Devil's Tower National Monument.
What to bring
A wide angle lense is the first thought when you approach the monument. A good polarizer will also get use. There is a chance to use macro and telephotos as well.
