Explore the wild San Juan River and Ancient Rock Art
Spend 5 days floating down the wild San Juan River where you will encounter ancient rock art, wild Big Horn Sheep and amazing scenery all in the hands of the best river guides in the west, Canyon RIO. This itinerary is designed to leave plenty of time to explore each camp where you will be given instruction and guidance on landscape photography by David Muench and Thomas O'Brien. David has spent his life in the pursuit and exploration of many of the west's ancient pictographs and petroglyphs as seen in his published book titled "Images In Stone". Thomas will help instruct you on how to capture these beautiful locations in the light of a very full moon, so be prepared to explore and have fun out under the stars all while enjoying the convenience of a full camp with great hot food and cold drinks.
