November 2023 Western Slope plein air locations

Folks, watch for changes to the schedule this month - alot of where we go will depend on how the leaves are changing so stay tuned for alterations to the schedule.  If there is a change, you will get an email from me prior to the date in question.

Thursday, November 2 – Junior Service League Park – the park is on the Colorado River right where the 24 Road overpass meets Redlands Parkway.    You can’t make a legal left-hand turn off of 24 Road as you are coming down from the overpass to get to the park entrance – so go up to the Redlands Parkway Boat Ramp, turn around and come back.  There is an outdoor restroom there.    The parking area is somewhat limited but there is plenty of parking at the Blue Heron boat ramp lot and plenty to paint there too – if there are too many of us, we’ll have to split up and have part of the group go over to the boat ramp area.,-108.6127148,17z/data=!4m6!3m5!1s0x87471d2de46cb9b1:0x4984b942516833c5!8m2!3d39.0894469!4d-108.611996!16s%2Fg%2F12hn96vcj?entry=ttu

Thursday, November 9 – Riggs Hill – take Redlands Parkway west and south towards the Redlands, go through the roundabout at Redlands Parkway and Broadway and go straight through like you were going to Tiara Rado golf course.  Watch for the intersection at South Camp Road – Riggs Hill is just beyond that intersection on the right.  No restroom there so plan accordingly.,-108.6676406,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m6!3m5!1s0x874702e18bd16f61:0xcefe75b969c776c9!8m2!3d39.0760926!4d-108.6470409!16s%2Fg%2F1v1kqbg9?entry=ttu
