Bio Photo Experience at Scenic Cacapon Mountain and Historic Chesapeake and Ohio Canal System (October 6-12, 2013)

Learn about this beautiful, natural region of West Virginia; its wildlife, history, and fantastic natural beauty during the peak of autumn color, from a seasoned field biologist with roots in this area, while honing your photographic skills with a professional landscape photographer. We will be staying at the Historic Cacapon Lodge, located at the base of photogenic Cacapon Mountain (the highest peak in this region). This will be the starting point for a large network of nature trails to explore, and we will capture the peak of the autumn colors, pristine waterfalls, native wildlife and seasonally migrating birds, fast-flowing rivers, natural hot springs, and several historic sites along the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal System during our tour.
