What to expect: This workshop will consist of both class and in-the-field instruction. We will also be doing some hiking, so please consider this prior to signing up. Most of the trails are considered easy hikes, but we may also hike to Corona Arch or Delicate Arch one afternoon, which I would rate as a moderate hike. Since Moab's elevation is above 5000 ft, even an easy hike may cause problems for those with respiratory problems. Also note that we will be shooting, walking, and/or hiking in the dark using flashlights (mostly return trips). Workshop registration is non-refundable
