The trip to Whatcom Falls is designed for individuals that are new to photography. There will be lots of time to practice using the different settings on your camera. The photo opportunities include waterfalls, a stream, a pond with birds, an old railroad trestle, and another pond with ducks. This will be a slow paced hike with possible long stops for photos. If you are expecting a quick hike around the park, this may not be the hike for you.

The hike will go rain or shine. If it is raining too hard to use the cameras, we will enjoy a walk around the beautiful park.
