The Death Valley covers, in the collective imagination of all lovers of landscape photography, a very special role. Set between the federal states of California and Nevada, made famous by the myths of the gold diggers, immortalized by the great masters of photography and celebrated by great directors, it is a real mecca for those who make photography and travel a supporting motif of one's being. Death Valley National Park, the photographic area of this workshop, stretches for about 170 km and 40 in width. It is therefore not huge, but rather challenging to explore: very few asphalt roads, which lead to wonderful and easily accessible scenarios. The rest of the backcountry, the most remote and astonishing areas, are accessible only with special permits with suitable vehicles. Combining the ability to travel without limitation to the freedom to stay in distant places with ad hoc logistics, we have chosen to organize this adventure in Truck Camper. These vehicles, camper cells mounted on large four-wheel drive pick-ups, will allow us to realize our dream. We will be divided into crews, each with 2/3 participants, and our crazy convoy will move everywhere. It is not an experience for everyone: the success of the workshop and the personal satisfaction of each participant must be kept in mind that requires a spirit of adaptation, the ability to share reduced common spaces and great willingness to collaborate in everyday life (kitchen, corvette, displacements, etc.). Premises these conditions, for those who will nurture the right approach to a type of travel markedly adventurous and outside the usual there will be no deep breaths and constant enchantment. In order not to make the tour too burdensome, we will alternate overnights in the few campings of the park, equipped with showers, and nights in the desert areas, where we will be alone and the Death Valley. We will do a great shopping in Los Angeles before leaving and we will be completely free! It's a tour we've been thinking about for a long time; let's break the delay, let's do it! Flights included.
