A digital SLR is preferred, but a point-and-shoot digital camera with manual control over exposure will also suffice. A sturdy tripod is essential, however. Sturdy, comfortable hiking boots or shoes are always a good idea, even though no long, strenuous hiking is involved. Bringing rain gear is also a good idea, considering the unpredictable nature of mountain weather during the months of spring and summer.
The meeting place will be Hendersonville, North Carolina with local excursions to nearby Pisgah National Forest, Dupont State Forest, locations along the Blue Ridge Parkway and maybe even into the upstate of South Carolina. Exact locations will be chosen based on the current conditions and weather.
