Day Hike - Artist Point

Trip

Day Hike - Artist Point

Astro photography (milky way, night sky) at night.

  • Easy

Meet next to toilets at Artist Point at 7:30pm. Look for people with cameras/tripods.

We expect this to be a full roster with a waitlist, so if you aren't certain you will make it, please don't wait until the last minute to cancel! Those on the waitlist need a few days to make arrangements!

Bring your tripod. You can learn more about what other camera equipment to bring and tips on Peta Pixel and Wilderness.org.

Sunset is at 8:30pm, so you'll have an hour to set up and take some late evening photos. We'll stay several hours before returning to Baker Lodge.

You'll need a head lamp for sure (though, be careful using it when the sky is dark and others are still photographing the sky). If you pack your 10 essentials, you know you'll be covered(in fact, this is a Mountaineers rule).
