    Fall Color is upon us!

    It’s a great time to get together and photograph. There has been scattered mentions about dates each of us will be out shooting, and some people have already made connections to meet up.

    I know that I enjoy the chance at meeting with you guys and gals. Whether it’s to go photograph together or to catch a lunch or dinner together. So please add your known traveling dates to this thread, and let’s see how many of us can meet up.

    Keep in mind we do have a thread in Sit and Chat where we can post out FocalWorld meet up photos of each other too. I look forward to seeing more additions to that. :)

    Jim

    My dates are not totally set in stone yet.

    I look to be leaving either Thurs or Fri (9/20-21) and I am thinking on heading up to the Tetons for a few days.

    I will probably head down to SW Colorado around Ouray/Telluride about 9/26 (Wed). I will be there for 5 or 6 days.

    A possibility will also be Oct 6/7 in the Eastern Sierra.

    That would be great Kyle. I don't have anything specific in mind though I am leaning towards Hope Valley and that area. May just have to wait and see where the fall colors are at that point.

    I am in Yellowstone at Bridge Bay tonight and will be heading down to the Tetons tomorrow. Campgrounds are packed in Yellowstone even though most of them are closing as of Saturday night. Hope they don't all head down to the campgrounds in the Tetons. I am planning on getting an early start to score a campsite. Storms have moved in up here as of the last 2 days so lots of clouds and passing showers which has resulted in some nice shooting conditions.

    I will leave the Teton area on Tuesday 9/25 and start working my way back west. I was planning on going back up through Yellowstone for a couple more days but since all of the campgrounds in the areas I am interested will be shut down it will be more like driving through to get to West Yellowstone and then up through the Gallatin NF to I-90.

    I'll be in the Eastern Sierra with spouse October 6th (sunrise) to October 8th (sunrise) with Mammoth as our base of operations. I'll be wherever I can find color :)

    That's great! It looks like we can have a nice FocalWorld meet up in the Eastern Sierra also!

    So far it looks like Kyle, Jeffrey, Tim, Dave and hopefully myself around that weekend of the 6/7.

    Anyone else interested or is heading up there, please speak up. :)

    If anyone else is going to be in the Tetons this weekend, let us know. We have a FocalWorld dinner planned today before kicking off a fun weekend of fun and photography. :)

    We have another big get together being planned for this Sunday in SW Colorado in Ridgway. We are meeting to eat at 2pm, and then going out to shoot the sunset.

    If you will be in SW Colorado and I haven’t already talked to you about it this last week, please say something. :) it will be great to meet up with as many people as possible.

    Nice - let's keep in touch. I want to time good color in the valley with (hopefully) some nice light.

    Just spent some time in the archives. Found good color in the valley from 10/21 through 11/01, different years.
