San Francisco world travelers heading for Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch, New Mexico should be sure to check out the 2013-2014 Programs including a Photo Tour with Optional Nature Tour, September 24th-28th, 2013 and the Winter Program January through March 2014.
Vermejo Park Ranch, one of the West’s premier hunting, fishing and nature tourism resorts, is located in beautiful northern New Mexico.
The Photography Tour is a unique opportunity during Rocky Mountain Elk rut season to experience the drama of witnessing these noble animals as they display their primordial dispositions of survival of the fittest.
The changing colors of fall will set the background – brilliant yellows, and burnt oranges surround high mountain streams and deeply colored conifers.
World travelers should note that award-winning nature, bird and wildlife photographer, Jeff Parker, will guide the photography tour. Parker is well practiced in “leading the naturally curious on photo tours throughout North and Central America.” In conjunction with VPR staff, Jeff Parker will work to provide one of the most unique photography experiences available in the U.S. This is definitely worth seeing!
Vermejo Park Ranch is extending the offer of a photography tour, “plus one” at the package rate of $3,125. Experience the guided photography tour with Jeff Parker, while your guest enjoys a guided tour of historical sites, wildlife and extraordinary scenery.
The individual guided photography tour with Jeff Parker is $1995. Stand-alone guided nature tour is $1500 per person.
