Frequently asked questions

Questions & Answers

  • Which maps program do you use?

    We use Google maps for direct links for GPS coordinates and directions.

  • How do I know what equipment to bring?

    For each location, we provide a list of special equipment you might need. For example waders, broom, walking stick, pano equipment, rain sleeve, tripod, a polarizer, a neutral density (ND) filter, umbrella, hat, or micro lens cloth to wipe down your lens/equipment?

  • How do I know if the hike is right for me?

    For each location we provide a Trail Difficulty rating from 1 to 5 (1 being very easy and 5 being very difficult).

  • How can I determine where the sun will rise/set?

    For each location, we provide a direct link to the The Photographer's Ephemeris. This program provides both time and direction of the sunrise and sunset for every day of the year.

  • Do you provide recommendations for restaurants?

    We share our personal favorites for restaurants or brew houses. Additionally, we provide a direct link to yelp - so the user can see comments and ratings from others.
