Paint Mines field trip update

Paint Mines

Click here for the basic lowdown on the field trip paying particular attention to the equipment list.

The Tuesday, May 20th weather forecast for beautiful Calhan calls for a high temperature of 83 degrees, a 10% chance for afternoon showers, and wind out of the south. The UV index will be very high (bring your sunscreen). It looks to be a hot day for hiking. That said:

  • slather on sunscreen (about a shot glass full should do it),
  • dress appropriately (i.e., in layers),
  • 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
