City of Rocks National Reserve

City of Rocks National Reserve

May 10th-12th (Thursday – Saturday)

A few club members are looking at spending a few days in May at the City of Rock National Reserve.  This trip is not an official Club Sponsored trip but a more casual get together with people with like and similar interests.  This trip is also somewhat weather dependent.

The dates we are looking at are from Thursday (am) to Saturday (anytime) May 10th-12th.  The itinerary is very loose and may include:

  • Landscape photography
  • Sunset and Sunrise
  • Early Americana Photography
  • Tracy’s General Store in Almo
  • Much of the late 1800 and early 1900 structures of the surrounding area
  • Astro photography

It looks like there will be a Milky-way arch low in the sky about Mid-night at about 60 degrees Northeast.  We should be able to draw it out digitally. Just having a good time.

Eric met with the owner of Tracy’s General store.  She was willing to let us come in and do some “staged” photography of some of the early 1900 equipment and antiques in her store.

Some of us are planning on tenting it.  There is a nice campground with hookups (Smoky Mountain Campground) that can be reserved on Reserve America:

If you have interest is going please let Eric know and he will include you in the trip planning emails and weather updates.
