Ireland with Chuck Haney

A 10-day all-inclusive photo tour of Ireland. City Streets of Dublin, Giant’s Causeway, The Dark Hedges, Fanad Lighthouse, Cliffs of Moher, The Dingle Peninsula and Killarney National Park are highlights of the trip. 16-passenger van, only 8 participants.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park with Chuck Haney

Theodore Roosevelt National Park is one of my absolutely favorite parks. In fact, the second best national park for photographing wildlife (behind only Yellowstone) in my opinion. I have been coming to this uncrowded park for over 20 years to photograph and explore and I know the park quite well. My book, “Theodore Roosevelt Impressions” is now in its second printing.
Here dramatic badlands and high plains are home to a large herd of bison reside along with bands of wild horses, elk, mule deer and prairie dogs. There are also plentiful birds, including songbirds, wild turkeys and owls. We will be visiting when the prairie is transformed by spring rains to a vibrant green with stands of wildflowers adding accents to the already colorful landscape. Best of all, unlike other national parks, we usually have the entire place to ourselves.
I’ve taught classes in this special park many times. The classes are usually small and we have had spectacular results with both wildlife and the weather. Thunderstorms often pass through this region in June and if the timing is right, rainbows and dramatic skies complement the fascinating badlands landscape. Everyone who has taken this class has loved the experience. The small town of Medora where we will be based has “cowboy charm”. In fact, our delicious breakfast stop, The Cowboy Cafe has become part of the workshop legend.
