Alpine Dreams

Terms & conditions
I learned a lesson this day.

While I was out in Colorado I scouted all of my locations and hikes before the workshop I was leading.

This location was one that I added last minute and in doing so I did not do the adequate research into my hike.

I had read quickly before getting to the trailhead that there were lots of wildflowers through sweeping meadows and very little elevation change. I also remembered that it was about a 2.2 mile hike each way.

I was so very wrong.

After a few hundred feet of hiking up I began to realize I had read the description for a different hike in my haste but I hoped things would level off.

They didn’t.

I found myself doing something I have never done on a hike before, I was considering simply turning around because the hike was so hard. To put it into perspective, it was my first day in Colorado and I will typically do a warm up hike of a few miles. At about mile two with the trail not leveling out once I was sweating so much my hiking boots were soaked.

Eventually I got to the end of the hike, an amazing alpine lake. You cannot see it much here because the water was a little choppy so I composed a different shot with this clump of grass in the foreground.

But what I learned that day was the even though I do lots and lots of research on my locations and shots, I still make mistakes.

When it was all said and done I hiked just shy of 2,000’ of elevation on the 3.2 miles there and then got to hike back down. All in all I hiked a total of just over 7 miles in three hours (including shooting) and had planned for 4 with a couple hundred feet of elevation gain.

Once a transaction has been completed (i.e., the buyer selected and paid for the photo and then Tyler King Art sent the buyer the correct photograph) it is then considered non-refundable. If a buyer has selected and purchased an incorrect photo, he/she must notify Tyler King Art, before receiving the “incorrect” photograph. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo”, selecting an incorrect photo after the buyer has already received the photograph, or any other reason. If a mistaken photo is sent to the buyer, as documented on the invoice, Tyler King Art will send the correct photo to the buyer free of charge. If the buyer purchases an original ink drawing it can be returned at the buyers expense. The buyer will be refunded only after inspection of the art and it determined that there has been no damage to the item.
