Time: 9:30 am
Place: Sky Tavern on Mount Rose Hwy 431
Meeting Place: Mountain Top Sports Rentals at Bum's Gulch Road. From there we can drive around into the Sky Tavern Ski Area which is obviously closed! There is plenty of parking in there and since some workers are doing maintenance, the bathrooms may be open (?) and drinking fountains (?)
Sorry the picture above was taken at 3:30 pm yesterday and the sun was in my eyes so the picture is not showing the true colors. But as you can see there are willows and creek-run-off areas, Aspen trees in yellow and evergreen hills.
I'm also sorry this is such late notice - I just got back from a vacation.
What to bring:
- painting gear
- drinking water
- lunch or snacks
- carts will work in a lot of the areas
- cell phone - not sure they will work well here - maybe
- jacket or windbreaker
*In case there is wind we will continue back down toward Reno and go to Thomas Creek (off of Timberline Road)
Directions: From Reno - take Mount Rose Hwy 431 about 12 miles up the hill from the intersection of I-580. Just past the old Tanenbaum area you will see a snow removal shed on the left and then a blue sign for Sky Tavern where the gate is closed. Just past that on the right is the Mountain Top Sports Rentals in above picture and turn right there. That little road is called Bum's Gulch Road. We will meet in this wide paved area.
