Tallulah (Evelyn Laeschke): A day of fun, inspirations and a team-motivating workshop “Nature and Landscape Photography” was a great experience with a small group of outdoor photographers through the Tallulah Gorge State Park.

Tallulah Gorge State Park - WaterfallWe met at the Jane Hurt Yarn Interpretive Center that greeted us with information about wildlife and a geographical overview of the park.

We started our way down the staircase to the suspension bridge, which sways 80 feet above the rocky bottom of the Tallulah River and the Hurricane Falls. Along the way, many flowers, butterflies and bees collecting nectar, exercised as portrait objects.

The instructor lead photography workshop followed our socializing lunch break in a nice picnic setting overlooking the canyon. On our way back, we crossed the Dam to the North Rim Trail.

At the end of the tour we downloaded the images to our laptops at a picnic facility, and discussed to come next time early to obtain a permit to hike to the gorge floor (only 100 visitors allowed per day), and may stay overnight at one of the available camping facilities.
