Attention Poly members,
October 21 through 23 (or any portion thereof) we have a field trip to Joshua Tree National Park …
Arrival on Friday, October 21….share a welcome cocktail hour with Poly photogs
Hotel of choice: Fairfield Inn & Suites in 29 Palms
Free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi. We used AAA discount which is slightly more expensive than the cheapest but not pre-paid in full and fully refundable with 24-hour notice. I went to the Marriott website directly rather than a re seller (hotels.com, Travelocity, etc).
Backup hotels: Best Western Gardens Hotel at Joshua Tree in 29 Palms
Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites in 29 Palms
Camping sites are available by reservation.
Book your hotel stay asap as room availability is limited…the desert fall season is in full swing by mid October, the weather is fine.. daytime highs are in the mid to high 80’s and the nighttime lows are in the low 50’s.
The itinerary plan:
Daytime hiking and photo venues are to be determined …Hidden Valley, Jumbo Rocks, Arch Rock, Skull Rock, Barker Dam, the Cholla Garden ..and more!
We have a scheduled private photo tour of the Keys Ranch for Saturday, Oct 22 at 7am to 9am.
Les and Mary Anderson will lead our exciting night sky photo adventure Saturday night from sunset and moon rise through the “window of darkness”. Attending the Poly workshop on Photographing the Night Sky on October 15th is advisable if you are interested in night sky shooting.
