Experience and capture the beauty of Dunton with your iPhone!

Surrounded by red rock and 14,000’ peaks in an incomparable remote, alpine valley with the west fork of the Dolores River snaking through; Dunton River Camp implores even the “hard to impress” to try to capture the stunning landscape in a picture.

Today, more than ever, the saying, “the best camera is the one that’s with you,” is true!  Your iPhone has become one of those devices that you are probably not often found without.  Not only is there the factor of convenience, but the quality of images you are able to capture is extraordinary.  With the help of experts, you can catapult your own skill level forward dramatically in a short amount of time.  This September, Dunton River Camp is offering guests that opportunity.  The River Camp provides the perfect backdrop for beginners, as well as experienced photographers.
