1. Seems to be limited to workshops. I get it: a gang of 10 people
blocking a trail with tripods would be a nuisance to others.

2. I've done Zion. Beautiful. Even hauled a 'blad, a dozen lenses and
2 tripods up to Angel's Landing. It was only 43°C so no sweat. Well,
you did sweat, but it evaporated quick. That trail and final climb up
Angels is no place for 10 - 12 people with tripods all at once.

Bring plenty of water.

So, if some guy is out in the open, nowhere near any people (assuming the Marxists who run the parks even allow someone off "designated paths") will he not be allowed to use a tripod?


What part of groups (workshops) is giving you a comprehension challenge?

There are a few reasons why folks need to stick to the designated paths in
some National Parks.

Your post reminded me of my much younger days. (I was about 22.) I
walked down the mule train path a bit more than half way to the bottom
of the Canyon and up again, the same day, carrying nothing but six
oranges. If I had brought a tripod, I might still be somewhere on that
trail.

Did the same. Mule **** every switchback at something over 40°C made me
retch.

That's where a drone might come in handy.

Drones are banned in most parks. That's a good thing for several
reasons (peace and quiet mainly, and to some degree, safety).
