  • You should bring sturdy, comfortable shoes. There's a lot of walking to do if you want to see some of these areas.
  • It is COLD on these mornings, so you'll want todress in layers so you can strip layers off, as the days get quite warm.
  • We do our best to make sure you don't have to sitin the vehicle for long stretches.
  • If you see something that you'd like to shoot,just let us know.  If we can stop, we will.
  • We try to make plenty of stops where you can takeadvantage of road-side services.
  • The lunch menu has not yet been determined, butit's been interesting and tasty in the past.  I try to includefruits, chips and cookies for snacks.
