Free Fall Photo Walk at Hobbs State Park Rescheduled for Earlier in the Day – November 2nd

28 Oct 2019 2:47 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Originally scheduled for later in the day, the Photographic Society of Northwest Arkansas (PSNWA) has rescheduled their free photo walk at Hobbs State Park to 7:30 am on Saturday November 2nd.   This is to take advantage of less wind in the morning.

The event will be hosted by two Nature photographers from the PSNWA, Cleeo Wright and Tim Johnson.

The theme of this event is “Fall Colors”, focusing on the final changing colors of the foliage at Hobbs State Park.  Bring whatever camera gear you are comfortable with, be it a full-frame DSLR, or a smartphone.  If you are familiar with the manual settings of your camera, and like fall color/nature photography – this photo walk is for you.

All participants will meet at the parking lot of the Historic Van Winkle and Sinking Stream Trailheads, to begin the photo walk promptly at 7:30 am.

The photo walk will take place rain or shine.  Overcast and wet mornings create some of the best photographic Fall Color opportunities.  The trails are described as “easy” in difficulty, yet it is suggested to bring sturdy shoes suitable for hiking.  Sinking Stream Trail has one small elevation.  The Historic Van Winkle Trail is wheelchair accessible.  Each trail is 0.5 miles in length.

Traveling east out of Rogers on Hwy. 12, about 10 miles from downtown, is a paved parking lot on your right with restrooms.  This is the site of both the Historic Van Winkle and Sinking Stream trailheads.

If you are a seasoned photographer, or just beginning, you will not want to miss the chance to attend this lovely photo walk of Fall Color photography.

Where:  Parking lot on Hwy. 12 at the beginning of the Historic Van Winkle and Sinking Stream Trailheads.  GPS: N36 17.810’ - W093 57.494’ (1 ½ miles west of the Hobbs State Park visitor center)

When:  Saturday November 2, 2019 at 7:30 am

Cost:  Free. All levels of ability welcomed.
