August 14 - Grand Mesa. - Let’s meet at the Carson Lake Recreation area on Lands End road on the Grand Mesa or if we see something great before there we might stop and paint on the way. Look for us. Better yet we can car pool. Let me know if you are going and we can organize this. The wildflowers will be spectacular, there are aspen trees and lakes and other great things to paint. There are restrooms, no water or cell phone coverage. RSVP are strongly recommended. We will be painting in a remote area so I want to make sure there will be a few of us to paint together for the safety of everyone. Here is the link to the location. Directions: From Mesa go south 19 miles on HWY 65 to Lands End Road (Forest Rt. 100) intersection. Turn right go 3.5 miles to Carson Lake sign turn left go 1.8 miles to parking area.
