Jenny Wiley State Park with Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox
October 31 - November 1$149.00
Once again, the Bluegrass State welcomes Mountaineer Photo Excursions back to one of the jewels of their State Park System, Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg, KY. Amanda Haddox and Ron Gaskins began teaching their photography workshops at this Park in 2012 and have returned with new and repeat “Workshoppers” every year since then! The Park consists of almost 3000 acres, over a third of which is Dewey Lake, all of which is surrounded by towering pines and peaceful mountains.
We are pleased to work with Trinity Shepherd, Park Naturalist, to present both the natural beauty and the interesting history of the area. Of course, we will embark on an “Elk Hunt” to see and photograph the nearby portion of Kentucky’s eight county free-ranging elk herd, which is estimated at 10-15,000 animals. Dewey Lake will be our Sunday morning venue, as we depart the Park Marina for a “Pontoon Boat Cruise” that will take us across the Lake and in the coves as we watch for heron, eagles, kingfishers, turkey and deer.
As always, we will also have other activities planned for the weekend in and around the Park. Amanda and Ron will share their photography knowledge and experience as you visit the various locations. Local transportation is included, and we will also offer lodging at May Lodge within the Park.
We will be operating in compliance with the Kentucky Governor’s current COVID-19 restrictions. At this time, this includes wearing masks in some circumstances and reduced restaurant capacity to 25%. While we have invited larger groups previously, we are limiting this year’s workshop to just 12 participants. This will allow easier opportunities for social distancing and conformance to all recommended safety guidelines. If the Governor issues new orders that will affect our workshop plans, we will update this description and advise anyone who has already registered.
Please read this note: On July 20, 2020, the Kentucky Department of Public Health issued a new travel advisory that recommends a 14-day self-quarantine for travelers who went to any of eight states – Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, South Carolina and Texas – that were reporting a positive coronavirus testing rate equal to or greater than 15%. The advisory also included Mississippi, which was quickly approaching a positive testing rate of 15%, and the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico.
