Sunrise on Wednesday Sept. 3 is at 6:27 AM. I suggest that we meet at Starbuck's at 5:00 AM (when they open). From Starbuck's it takes 40 minutes to drive to the Paint Mines. I suggest we leave Starbuck's at 5:05, putting us at the Mines at 5:45. This will give us enough time to hike to the shoot location (10 minutes), setup our gear, and be ready for sunrise.
Some may want to carpool to the Paint Mines; some may want to meet us there. We will meet at the South Paint Mines Parking lot at 5:45. The South lot is about about a quarter mile South of the lot that has the rest rooms. see attached Directions Map Link below.
Directions to Paint Mines (South Parking Lot)
Directions from Parking Lot to Picnic Table:

My cell phone:[masked]
I plan to be there from the time we arrive until around 9 am.
