Art in Nature – Parish Lake. Difficulty: Moderate. Length: 1.5 miles. Parish lake in July is an inspiring place. This ~1.5 mile round trip hike is downhill on the way in and up to come out. Bring your creativity, art materials, lunch and a sense of adventure. For some, art is more than drawing and painting. If art to you is taking photos or if you’re artistic inspiration comes from observing and meditating in nature, feel free to join us. Be prepared to relax, create, explore, and enjoy this unique area for several hours as we experience Parish Lake. Leader: Lisa Chase, Wilderness First Responder. Email: Cell: 541-401-4063.
