The Lens Luggers outdoor photography group will host two excursions, Oct. 20 and 21, to give visual enthusiasts the opportunity to hone their wildlife photography skills. The group will meet at 6:30 a.m. at Maggie Valley Inn and carpool to Cataloochee Valley for the elk in rut. Male elk are particularly active during the fall mating season as they fight over the females. The group will stop at several destinations on each day, including scenic routes along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
All camera levels and experience are welcome. Space is limited. Cost is $75 per day or $125 for both days.
