Paint Mines field trip update

The Wednesday, May 18th weather forecast for beautiful Calhan calls for a high temperature ranging from 59 to 66 degrees, a 30-40% chance for afternoon showers, and wind out of the southeast.  If the rain stays away, it looks to be a perfect day for hiking. That said:

  • dress appropriately (i.e., in layers) with a rain poncho, perhaps,
  • 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
