Sandia Crest, 7/27/2019

Our next outing will be to the top of the Sandia Crest.  I encourage everyone to try and car pool.  We will meet in front of the Crest House Saturday, July 27th at 10 AM and sketch till noon.  There are observation decks, easy hiking trails, a restaurant, and an observation room inside the Crest House.  It should be a nice reprieve from the heat and a lot of fun.

Take I-40 east from Albuquerque.

Use Exit 175 to NM 14 north for 6 miles.

Turn left and follow Highway 536 Sandia Crest National Scenic Byway for 14 miles to the summit and Sandia Crest House.

Let me know if you’ll be attending:

Cathedral Park, Santa Fe 7/6/2019

Our next outing will be to Cathedral Park in Santa Fe, on Saturday July 6th.  This time we will meet at 10:30 AM and sketch till about 12:30. Some sketchers would like to ride the train and that will give everyone time to get over to the Cathedral by 10:30.  There is a free shuttle that leaves from the train station and goes around to the Cathedral at 131 Cathedral Pl. The train leaves from the Montano Station at 8:39AM and arrives at the Santa Fe Depot at 10:05AM. Here’s a link to the train schedule:  And you can always drive/carpool if you like.

I will be out of town for the weekend and Donna Williams will be hosting this time.  You can still notify me if you’ll be attending and I will forward the list to Donna.  Have fun!
