September Paint-outs 2020

Sept 9 - Escalante canyon – 9:00am
Pothole overlook. This is a repeat because it was such a great location and last week we got blown away by the wind. This location is in an enchanting red rock canyon area which is truly one of the most beautiful unknown treasures in this part of the state.  The turn off is between Delta and Grand Junction on the highway. The Potholes are about 10  miles down a dirt road Some people may want to paint along the way the Pothole overlook. There is no cell phone. Make sure to bring water, food, and a good sense of adventure. There are restrooms, shaded areas and views all along the route in the canyon.  Meet at highway 50 and Escalante Canyon Road at 8:30 am to drive in together.  RSVP so we will expect you.

Directions: The Pothole recreation site is located a little over thirty-one miles from the intersection of 32 Road and U.S.50 in Grand Junction. To get there travel for approximately twenty-one miles towards Delta on U.S. 50. Turn right (South) onto Escalante Canyon Road and stay on the main road 10 miles as it winds and weaves its way down the canyon. The Captain Smith cabin is about 8 miles down the dirt road, located on your right. The Pothole recreations area is another 2 miles down the road on the left. Continue up the steep road hill another mile or two. Look for signs and covered shelters and restrooms on the left.
