Our Return To Jenny Wiley


It’s time to join Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox and return to Jenny Wiley State Resort Park!  This year, our fourth visit will be during the height of eastern Kentucky’s fall color.  We will rise early one morning to see the Rocky Mountain Elk herd, transplanted here and thriving on former surface mine properties.  We will also plan time for a pontoon boat cruise on Dewey Lake, where we have seen hawks, herons, and bald eagles!  During 2013, we were there in September, but this year we will return on October 17, 18, and 19.  The Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg is about 1.5 hours south of Ashland, KY.

Along with Ron Gaskins & Amanda Haddox of Mountaineer Photo Excursions, we will enjoy additional instruction from Park Naturalists Trinity Shepherd and Jayd Raines.  Travel for the field trips during the Workshop will be provided by the Park in their new bus!  Our Workshop will feature field trips, with some other activities occurring at the Park.  Workshoppers will receive photography instruction regarding exposure, lens choices, composition and more.  This Workshop is designed for novice and intermediate photographers who know the controls of their camera, but want to learn and improve.  We also welcome more experienced photographers!

This will be our least expensive Workshop during the year, and the last one of 2014.

The Workshop fee is $75, with on site lodging available at the May Lodge.  The Park is offering a Workshop & lodging package for $205; a Workshop, meals & lodging package for $233; and a “Couples Package” for $336.  To ensure your seat for all our field trips, you must register by 11:59pm on September 16.  In order to receive a full refund of your Workshop fee, you must cancel by 11:59pm on September 16, 2014.   To register for this Workshop only, contact the Park at 800-325-0142 or 606-889-1790.

Attention!  Effective on September 19, 2014, the Park is still accepting registrations for this workshop.  In addition, the Park Staff has noted that, in most cases, your credit card will not be charged in advance of the Workshop dates. (Ron G.)
