Twenty seven thousand cranes pass through Colorado’s San Luis Valley in March, and the Medano Zapata Ranch is perfectly situtated for the migration. I’ll be assisting renowned photographer Michael Forsberg at a new photo workshop from March 23-27 at Zapata Ranch, which also happens to share a border with Great Sand Dunes National Park. I could go into great detail about Mike’s work with cranes throughout North America for his book On Ancient Wings, or the amazing accomodations at Zapata, the wonders of Great Sand Dunes N.P. and more… Or you could just check it out here and join us!
* I just learned that the workshop is full! With this kind of response, I’m sure it will become an annual event – please stay in touch.
About the attached image: I photographed these cranes along the Upper Green River in Wyoming. They travel the migration route that passes through the San Luis Valley en-route to their spring and summer nesting grounds in Wyoming.
