In cooperation with Tonto National Monument staff, volunteers Rex and Peg Lavoie have launched a visitor photo walk program at the park. The goal of the photo walks is to provide a way for professional and serious amateur photographers to capture images along the upper cliff dwelling trail as well as at the cliff dwelling itself without having to disrupt regular ranger guided tours.

The photo walks are planned to allow the participants not only the time to compose images, but to also provide them with the best lighting conditions. Group size is limited to five to seven visitors.

Photo tour dates run through the end of April. The next photo walks are set for 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 15.

Special arrangements can be made for photo classes and camera clubs if desired.

For more information, call Tonto National Monument at (928) 467-2241, ext. 8450, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, or visit www.nps.gov/tont. Tonto National Monument is located four miles east of Roosevelt Dam on State Highway 188.
