Be In Good Physical Shape For The Environment
If you come from sea level and want to go on a tour at high elevation, are you physically fit and able to handle the abrupt acclimation? If the tour requires hiking or trail walking at high elevations, are you in shape to do this? Some tours offer locations that are strictly “work out of the car,” while others go to locations that require hiking. If you go to Arches National Park and expect to get a great shot of Delicate Arch, unless you’re prepared to walk 11/2 miles uphill across slickrock, it’s not going to happen. Ask first to see if the shots you want are within your capabilities.
