The Tuesday, May 22nd weather forecast for beautiful Calhan calls for a temperature range of 57 to 65 degrees, a 50% chance for afternoon showers, and wind out of the north. It looks to be an ideal day for hiking. That said:
- slather on sunscreen (about a shot glass full should do it),
- dress appropriately (in layers and, if handy, bring a rain poncho),
- bring enough water (about 64 ounces, i.e., 8 ounces per half hour) and
- trail food in addition to your disposable lunch and drink (examples: granola bars, toaster pastries, cookies, trail mix, dried fruit, Fig Newtons, M&M’s, sunflower seeds, hard candy, crackers, candy bars, or cheese, but absolutely NO PEANUTS or PEANUT BUTTER).
