Seattle night photography
Just because the sun’s gone down, it doesn't mean your day of photography has to end. Night photography is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of digital photography. Take a journey of Seattle after dark. Minimum age: 12 (younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult).

Timelapse photography
A time-lapse video essentially compresses time into a smaller space, creating some entertaining and evocative results. In this workshop, you’ll learn the tools, techniques and concepts involved in creating great time-lapse videos from still captures. Learn how to choose the right equipment, get the right settings for your camera and compose shots in a way that will be easy to work with later. Then work on a series of time-lapse projects of both fast-moving and slow-moving subjects, as well as one where the camera itself is moving. Please bring your camera, trip-pod and extra batteries. Depart from the Northwest Adventure Center at Lewis North at 9 a.m. Minimum age: 12 (younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult). ($45) Register at JBLMmwrRegistration.com.

Nov. 7-15
Climb Peru
There are few things more spectacular than the ancient ruins scattered about the planet by our predecessors. Machu Picchu is no exception to that. Spend a few days in Cusco to acclimate before diving into the Andes Mountains. An option exists for getting to the ruins via the Incan Trail, a 26-mile route that combines beautiful mountain scenery, lush cloud-forest, subtropical jungle and, of course, a stunning mix of Inca paving stones, ruins and tunnels. The final destination of the trail is Machu Picchu, the mysterious "Lost City of the Incas.” Enjoy local culture, cuisine and incredible interactions with the Peruvian world.
Not included: Clothing appropriate for conditions (no cotton!) and food for the duration. We can assist you in selecting appropriate clothing.

Germany Christmas markets
The holiday season is already bright and warm and festive, but throw in the German twist and you have some of the most beautiful scenery you’ve ever seen! If you’ve been to a holiday market in Germany, then you know how special it is; and if you haven’t, now’s the chance for you to see three of them! Explore the giant and colorful market in Munich that takes you through the shopping district to the famous Glockenspiel. This trip will also take us down to the incredible Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, nestled in the Alps right under the glorious Zugspites Mountain. Enjoy a few days of the festival, hiking through the Partnach Gorge, even taking the tram to the top of the glacier. Let’s not forget about the Austrian town of Berchtesgaden where we can visit the Eagle’s Nest, and most importantly, experience the unique Krampus Festival; watching Saint Nicholas and his watchful demons prance around while sipping hot Gluwein at the local festival!
