Event Details

Join a Bureau of Land Management Park Ranger for a short photography walk to celebrate Ansel Adams’ birthday and to learn how photographic art has influenced conservation. This hike will take place on the 2-mile (3.2 km) Moenkopi Trail to get various angles on the Calico Hills, Turtlehead Peak, Wilson Cliffs, and other iconic Red Rock Canyon landscape features.

The Moenkopi Trail is unpaved and occasionally rocky, and it will involve around 300 ft (92 m) of elevation gain. We recommended doing any other activities at Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area before the program rather than after, as the Red Rock Canyon Visitor Center will close at 4:30 pm, and the Scenic Drive will close at 5:00 pm. Cameras will not be provided for this program, but photographers of all skill levels and types of equipment are welcome. Cell phones can take some great pictures these days!
