On a recent visit with a friend, we ventured out to Calhan, Colorado to hike Painted Mines Park.

I intentionally waited to write or conceptualize this post until the snow stopped. So, let’s just say this if for dressing in spring in Colorado, between May and June, because that is actually what I’m writing about.
