Lakeland Photo International is pleased to announce a fantastic new trip to the USA in September 2013. Planned in conjunction with KE Travel it will be a 14 night fully escorted trip flying into Jackson, Wyoming. The trip starts with two National Parks the Grand Tetons and then Yellowstone. Then the trip will follow the Rockies south, taking in Moab, Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon and ending at the Grand Canyon and flying home from Las Vegas. This truly is a road trip with a photographic extravaganza to dream about.
