It is a good workshop and Ron has a good approach and is very helpful....Don't be shy about asking questions, shot set up focus etc.

You also get lots of good practical info on lenses. I took this workshop with Ron a few years ago....what a great time to be in DV....this time of year and this year is exceptional due to the record amount of rain...I would take some color film for sure. Shoot as much as you can...I wouldnt be too concerned about having to hike too far....there are so many wonderful photographs quite close to the car...good luck...I hope to be in the valley in the next two weeks..
