5/22/21 – Let’s Take A Trip to San Angelo!

All interested WALKERS!   We’re planning on Saturday, May 22nd, that our group will venture towards the southeast and walk through San Angelo.  The San Angelo Volksswalkers sponsors two walks in San Angelo, and we will choose which one to explore.

To avoid the heat, let’s meet behind the JumBurrito at Midland Park Mall at 7:00 a.m., on Saturday May 22 for carpool/caravan.  The drive takes around 2 hours.  We will gather at the Red Lion Hotel 441 Rio Concho Drive around 9:00 or 9:15 a.m.

Please bring your $3 AVA walk fee, record booklets, water, and money for lunch.  We are unsure at this point if we will actually enter Fort Concho, but there is an admission fee $5.00 to $7.00.   We can discuss this when we all meet up!
