Last fall a group of artists and myself were invited to visit and partake in a Plein Air Event which took place in Blue Mountain Birch Cove (BMBC), Wilderness Area. This event was initiated by the CARP Environment Committee and organized by James Boyer and Violet Rosengarten.
I landed up painting at Flagpole Hill on the edge of Susie's Lake (this is the view above in the poster). There are numerous trails, so when I returned, I used the site below to upload the map to my phone: http://www.halifaxtrails.ca/index_files/BlueMountainTrail.htm
If you've never visited, I think you'll be as delighted as I was to find out about this hidden gem in our own backyard!
Hope to see you at the opening!
