Carolyn here, and I'm back to help out with organizing paint-outs. I am going to make it easier and quicker for me, so I am posting two paint-outs at the same time and in simpler format. Most of you have painted with us and know how to get to these places, so all the descriptions will be simplified.
Monday June 5, 2017 at 9:00am at Galena Regional Park (south entrance)
Monday, June 12, 2017 at 9:00 am at Hope Valley. Meet at Hope Valley Campground Cafe. I will be camping there and will meet you. If you are late, places to look are across the highway from Sorensen's resort. There is a creek on that side of the road and pull off parking. I am planning on painting there. Some paint at the first bridge on the left-hand side and hike down to the river. Still some like to drive all the way up to Blue Lakes via Blue Lakes Road.
For further instructions, maps and photos, you can go to the top of the blog to the search box and type in the name of the location (i.e.) Hope Valley or Galena. This will bring you to an older post about that location when I was spending a lot of time putting all that stuff in (no time for that now!)
