The Mountains around Grants NM: Hike, Paint, Draw, Inspire, Enjoy...

Ranger Jenn holds these events EVERY THIRD Sunday in the Grants, New Mexico area.

Meet at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center (NWNMVC), in Grants NM, at 9:00 am. Then we will caravan to a different place within the National Conservation Area each Sunday, where all artistic minded folks can set up their easels and let nature inspire. There can be as little or as much walking involved as you wish.

Or you can join  Jenn on a short walk for a stunning view. Total roundtrip milage each Sunday should not be more than about 1 and 1/2 miles. It's more about being outside creating art, than about hard core hiking.

Bring your own art supplies: paint, canvas, pencils, or sketch books. We plan to finish by noon or 1 depending on weather and the feelings of the group. Artists are encouraged to linger if they wish.

Dress for changing weather, layered clothing, closed toe shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, and snacks.  We are meeting at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center, The building itself is amazing and if weather is poor, we can sit in the huge windows and let the view inspire. We had a wonderful showcase of our collective works to celebrate our 1 year aniversary of holding this event. I would like to do that again at the 2 year anniversary in March 2013! :)

Please contact Ranger Jenn @ ([masked]) if you would like more details or directions! And... on the day of, please call Ranger Jenn at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center [masked])

Hey gang, We at the BLM have been offering these art walks for over a year and a half now, and to keep the mommentum going dispite logistical issues, we have switched to the Third Sunday of every month. I hope you can make it :)

    Hey guys, despite plenty of rain, we are still a go for our Art Walk tomorrow. We have had a request to go caving! We will still meet at the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center and get cave permits. We will then caravan out to a lava tube cave site, just off the road for some fun photography and otherworldly inspiration. Please bring head protection, headlamps and flashlights, wear long pants sturdy shoes and bring gloves. Oh and don't forget your sense of adventure. We can do as little or as much actual caving as you are interested in. We can also just sit around the outside of these caves and enjoy the lava. See ya tomorrow!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
