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 Wednesday, May 16th weather forecast for beautiful Calhan calls for a high temperature of 77 degrees, a 30% chance for afternoon showers, and a 14 mph wind out of the southwest.  If the rain stays away, it looks to be a perfect day for hiking. That said:

  • the UV (sunburn) index will be “very high,” so bring your sunscreen,
  • dress appropriately (i.e., in layers) with a rain poncho, perhaps (we arrive around 9:30am and it will still be cool),
  • 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)
