Come Paint With The Wednesday Painters January 29th!

Wednesday Artists:

I am hoping to give more people an opportunity to enjoy group painting outdoors.  Everyone join in.  If you are not an APAP member, paint with them anyway.  You may want to join the club.  Check back for  new, upcoming Wednesday paint-outs here.

Wednesday, January 29 -- Bulldog Canyon (You need a Bulldog Canyon Permit to drive in.)  
Route A. From Fountain Hills:
From the intersection of Shea Blvd. and SR87 go North.  This is a left turn if you are going east on Shea.
Follow SR87 about 8 miles to Bush Hwy.
Turn right (east) on Bush Hwy. (overpass exit) and proceed past the Marina and the cliffs (Water Usage Area).
Just past the bridge, on the left side, is a parking area, a gate, and a large sign.  This is the entrance to Bulldog.

Route B. From the south or the west.
Take Loop 202 east to Power Road.
From the intersection of L202 and Power Road, turn left (north).
Power Road becomes Bush Highway.  Follow this to the entrance, a gravel parking area on the right.  If you go over the bridge, you went too far.

You need Bulldog permits if you plan to drive in.  You should get them anyway.  This is a free 6 month permit with gate codes.  Permits for Bulldog are available from the Mesa District Ranger Station at 5140 E. Ingram St., Mesa AZ 85205 / Telephone: 480-610-3300.  You can also apply online at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/tonto/passes-permits/other/?cid=stelprdb5348179.

Walkers and passengers do not need Bulldog permits, but drivers must have them.  All persons entering should have a Tonto pass.  All cars can make it into Bulldog at least part of the way.

I hope to see you there.  Please R.S.V.P. positive only.  I need to know if you will be there so that I am not waiting near the gate in vain.  The area is gated, and I do not want to wait for people who will not show.  If you plan to come later, I can email you the gate combination.
