There will be hiking, bring comfortable hiking shoes. Bug spray, sunscreen and a hat. Also bring a camera with clean memory cards and charged batteries in a camera bag that you don’t mind hiking with. You’ll need your normal walk-around lens, if you have a telephoto lens we’ll talk about those as well. We highly recommend bringing a tripod, but if you don’t have one we’ll discuss other stabilizing techniques. If you are unsure about how your camera works, please tuck the instruction manual in your camera bag. It makes it easier to help you dial in the settings on your brand of camera!  Water will be provided, please bring a pack lunch and a picnic blanket or chair. At this time, Cunningham Falls parking fee is $3 per person with Maryland License, $5 for all others.
