Baraboo, WI

AmericInn by Wyndham – Wisconsin Dells

Our Spring Chapter Outing in the Baraboo/Dells area is scheduled for May 10-12, 2019, though some folks will choose to arrive at the hotel on Thursday evening, May 9, to allow a full day of photography on Friday.  We will be based at the AmericInn by Wyndham Wisconsin Dells which is just off I-94, exit 87.  Linnea and I checked it out in August and found it to be a very nice property.  The rooms are a nice size, and a continental breakfast is provided at no additional charge.  We will have a conference room where we will meet to plan and share in the evenings beginning Thursday evening.   Other appealing amenities, such as an onsite bar, are listed on the hotel’s website.

Photo opportunities in the area include Pewit’s Nest, Parfrey’s Glen, the Dells Creek State Wildlife area, Sandhill Wildlife Area, Mid-Continent Railway Museum, Aldo Leopold Center, and a sunrise and/or sunset shoot at Mirror Lake State Park.  Unfortunately, the Crane Foundation will be closed in all of 2019.  We also intend to offer some optional group activities unique to the Dells area including a visit to the H. H. Bennett photography museum, a Dells boat ride, and dinner in the downtown Dells area, depending on your interest.

The October newsletter gave information on how to get a group rate that was good until midnight December 15.  If you missed that deadline, you can call the hotel at 866-899-4444 or check out the hotel’s website for room availability.

Should rooms not be available there, the Best Western Ambassador Inn & Suites is nearby and might be worth considering.

We look forward to a fun spring outing weekend and hope you will join us.

Spring in the Porkies

Michigan’s Porcupine State Park area is our 2018 spring photo outing destination for the weekend of May 18, 19, and 20.

Our base will be the AmericInn in Silver City, Michigan

Photo opportunities feature the area’s abundant water, such as Lake of the Clouds, Lake Superior, many rivers (e.g., Presque Isle River and water falls (e.g., Bond Falls).  Also, look for spring flowers and whatever else you can find around the area (e.g., small towns and farms).
