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.

million non-workers and 21 million government workers.
In what world does this represent a strong job market?”
