Shutterbugs dream of days filled with good lighting, great content and artistic inspiration.
Let’s “snap” our way across Converse County, capturing nature’s beauty, man’s creativity and our nation’s history.
Our excursion begins in Esterbook, a mountain community nestled near the base of Laramie Peak.
Ayres Natural Bridge
The angles associated with the natural rock archway will challenge even the most experienced photographer, but the rewards are breathtaking.
We’re off to Glenrock where we’ll enjoy photographing a train bridge built in 1911 and a historic downtown building. Built by the American Bridge Company of New York, the bridge serves as the gateway to Glenrock’s community park. In the downtown area, residents have worked hard to restore the Commerce Block. The building, listed on the National Historic Register, dates back to 1917 when it was built at a cost of $50,000.
End the day in Douglas, strolling along the North Platte River. The evening hours provide a chance to capture waterfowl and wildlife with your camera as the evening light interacts with the water. Two parking areas, one along Riverbend Drive and the other along West Yellowstone, serve as access points to the pathway.
