Don't forget, this Saturday is also our monthly paint-out:

Saguaro Lake/Verde River
Saturday, August 31
Our August location has been changed due to the unhappy event of the Yarnell fire. We will hold our APAP paint-out at Saguaro Lake on August 31st.
Toni Perrin will be your host for August.  Email is ToniPerrinStudio(at)icloud.com.

You need a Tonto National Forest Day Pass to park at these locations. They are available at Circle K gas stations, some grocery stores (i.e. Bashas in Carefree). One pass per car is required. If you have an annual Tonto pass, you are already covered.
Bring a cooler, drinks, and a picnic lunch for a tail-gate party. Or, if you prefer, have lunch at the nearby Lakeside Restaurant at the Marina. If the weather is a bit toasty, you can seek shelter under one of the ramadas. You can also paint from the piers.
SAGUARO LAKE August 31st -- Morning Location
Saguaro Lake is located on Bush Highway north of Mesa Arizona. There is a Marina and restaurant parking. When you get to the location, do not pull in there. Go straight through the gate, past the Ranger's shack. Follow the road until you find a place you want to park. Toni will be there from 6:30 a.m., but the official morning paint-out is from 8:30 to lunch time. Just arrive when you can and stay as long as you like.
Get a map and locate the intersection of Shea Blvd and SR87, located at Fountain Hills. This is northeast of Scottsdale, and northwest of Mesa.
From the north:
I 17 south to 101
East on 101 to Shea Blvd.
East on Shea Blvd to SR87 (Beeline Hwy).
North on SR87 to Bush Highway.
Right (east) on Bush Hwy to the Marina turnoff.
Left at the Marina to the entry gate for the lake access.
The Marina gates will be closed before 9 a.m.

WATER USER'S RECREATION AREA -- August 31st afternoon location.
After lunch we will exit south (left) on Bush Highway for about a mile. There are gorgeous cliffs and trails down to the Verde River. This is an afternoon painting location because the western sun lights the rock formations. Pull into the large parking lot on your left and find a wonderful spot. Stay as long as you like.
Be brave; take the trail down to the river. Go ahead and get your feet wet.
