Lily Lake
Monika, Pat and I will not be able to attend, but the directions are pretty easy and Pat enjoyed painting there earlier this summer and sent these photos.  (The rest of us were at the meadow area before the cabins).  Be sure to look for other artists and say Hi!  We have on average 5-6 artists each week - different ones each time and some are regulars.
