Description: My friends over at OutdoorFest have decided to take their popular Summer Campout upstate this Fall to one of my favorite places in New York State, the gorgeous Blackhead Mountain Range! They're setting up shop at the 500-acre Camp Tri-Mount Boy Scout Camp in The Great Northern Catskills and I've been invited to join them!
I'll be heading up an Outdoor Photography Class on Saturday, a Guided Hike/Photo Walk on Sunday, plus I'll be a judge for a t.b.d. photo-related activity for Sunday's Team Adventure Race. I'll also be around all weekend to chat and answer any questions you may have about photography, backpacking or the Catskills in general. Personally, I'm looking forward to participating in some of my fellow Outdoor Guide's activities and to the concert on Saturday night with free brews by Sierra Nevada -- oh yeah! For more information visit the OutdoorFest website.
Hurry and buy your early bird tickets by August 14th for a discount!
