    Going to a Workshop in Zion? Better leave the tripod.

    https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvis...-Workshops.pdf

    On Section 2
    "The use of tripods on trails is prohibited by permittees or clients (monopods are authorized)."

    On Section 8
    "Since nighttime photography requires the use of tripods and tripods are not authorized on park trails, nighttime photography is not authorized on park trails."

    Funny. This must only pertains to an official group permit, where they apparently don't want a bunch of people standing around blocking trails with tripods or other clutter like reflectors. Individuals use tripods in Zion all the time.

    So don't set up on a trail?

    That's how I interpret it--don't block trails. Common sense.

    Some of those trails are quite narrow. I remember hiking to the rim once with a huge pack full of Sinar too wide for even me to fit on the trail across a sandstone ledge. So I actually had to hang onto the cable from the other side, going hand by hand overhanging about 600 ft of air. I was used to that kind of thing back then. What didn't amuse me was getting chewed out by a group tour leader for stationing a tripod at the terminus of a wide paved popular trail. My reply: I was here first. You can wait.

    Do you try to crowd in line? So who was being rude?

    My guess is that you are intelligent enough NOT to put your tripod in the middle of a trail, telling people "I was here first". BEST of luck. What an opportunity!
