Have your camera ready at all times, if digital make sure there is a full battery and the memory chip is empty for taking photos. We always plan out our days when traveling and grab as many brochures of the area as possible. Then we can decide on what we will be focusing on for shooting. My husband and I both carry a backpack with our camera equipment, this really helps when walking on trails or national parks as we love to explore. There is a lot of fun to be had in photographing wildlife and nature. So just scope out the area you will be visiting and plot on a map your points of interest and have a fun time on your adventure, we sure do. Cheers!
