Immerse Yourself in Springtime Beauty!
(Available March 29 – June 15)
Spring is our favorite time to explore the beauty of the Blue Ridge region’s many species of colorful wildflowers, ferns, trees and other beautiful botanicals. And many of these ecosystems are most interesting around mountain streams and cascades. In this tour, we escort you to some of the best spots for the natural world in Spring time.
Possibilities include forest preserves, open fields along the Blue Ridge Parkway, and even a 5-mile round trip hike along a Smoky Mountain river (for full-day tours only). You will learn how to make closeup / macro portraits and intimate scenes that capture the mood and spirit of the plants, mountain streams and their habitat.
