Join professional wildlife photographer, Michelle Theall, for a unique and inspired weekend in northwest Colorado. This area of the iconic American West boasts wild mustangs, dinosaur fossils, and arid open landscapes. Open to shutterbugs and/or non-shutterbug horse lovers. At the Maybell Victory Hotel on Thursday night, we’ll kick off Wild Horse Weekend with a special presentation on the wild horses in Colorado and go over shooting technique for the photographers in our group. On Friday and Saturday mornings (early) we’ll head into the basin to scout for horses and photograph them. Other animals in the basin include golden eagles, antelope, rabbits, and coyotes. Note: This area is primitive. There are no restrooms or water. We will practice Leave No Trace principles. Guidelines and a packing list will be provided. Four-wheel drive, high-clearance vehicles are highly recommended and may be rented at the Denver airport or in Steamboat Springs. Members of the group are always welcome to break off on their own, or they may follow Theall to various watering holes within the basin for photo instruction. On Sunday morning, those who would like can drive back out to the basin for morning light, returning around 8 or 9am to get into position for the Great American Horse Drive thundering through the town of Maybell between 10-11am. A small town festival serves breakfast and offers various crafts for sale. Please note: Accommodations at the Victory Hotel aren’t fancy, but they are the closest to the basin, and they are clean and comfortable. The historic hunting lodge has shared bathrooms.
