PAAC Schedule for Estes Park
Wednesday mornings from 9 AM to noon, followed by a group critique (optional) and sack lunch together. Just show up if you can. All locations have facilities available. Many are in Rocky Mountain National Park and require a park pass. The schedule runs from May 3rd through September 27, 2017.
August 30 - Golden Ponds in Longmont. Take highway 66 to Hover St., turn south, go west on 3rd and drive straight into the parking lot. From Boulder take the Diagonal to Hover St.

September 13 - Lawn Lake Trailhead. Take the Fall River entrance into RMNP and go through Horseshoe Park. At the right hand turn for Endo Valley there is a parking lot immediately on the right, picnic grounds and facilities. Meet there and spread out.
September 20 - St. Bartholomew’s Church, approximately one-half mile from the intersection of Highway 34 (Wonderview bypass) and MacGregor Lane.
