I hope you all had a great Memorial Day. This month there will only be 3 plein air painting dates because of the holiday. We are going to start to head up to the higher elevations to stay cool while painting. Remember to bring your sunscreen, bug spray, water and your supplies (yes we all forget something sometimes) Some of the locations are remote so please RSVP so we paint in with other people for safety. That said you are all responsible for your own safety and ther for the safety of the group.
Canyon views will be your featured painting subject for this adventure which is located on Little Park Road almost to DS Road in Glade Park. The best way to get there is to go to the East entrance of the Colorado National Monument. Tell them you are going to Glade Park so you will not have to pay the entrance fee. Travel up past Cold Shivers Pt. Take the next left going to Glade Park. Travel for 3 or 4 miles and take a left on Little Park Road. Travel .6 of mile to pull off on the left. If you end up at the Glade Park store you went to far on DS Road

Duck Pond at 422 Ridges Blvd in the Ridges It is a small pond with pond vegetation, shade trees and a boat house. A very peaceful place. Restroom/outhouse is up the road at the tennis courts.
Redlands Dam boat launch along the Gunnison River 100 26 3/8 Road, Grand Junction, Colorado 81501. This a little gem of a place along the Gunnison River, a water dam, boat launch, beaches and lots of trees. It is a little hard to find and is remote. It is basically south of the Grand Junction Cemetery and the Incubator. The location is next to the Mule Pit Gravel Pit if you use google maps for the location. No services, so bring bug spray, water, sunscreen and snacks. RSVP please so we how many people are coming.
