Colorado City State Park TexasSaturday, March 6th, the Midland Walkabouts will visit Lake Colorado City State Park for a 5k, 6k or 10k hike.  The weather should be great.

Let’s meet behind JumBurrito at Midland Park Mall at 8:00 a.m., for carpool/caravan. 

Please let Carolyn know if you plan to come and if you are able to drive to Colorado City.

Bring $3.00 and your AVA event/distance booklets for credit.  Also bring a TX State Parks pass (if you have one) for reduced admission fee.   You can pay by credit card at the gate.   Pre-registration is recommended, but not required.  New members should bring their AVA packets which contains a free coupon.   (This walk is AVA Event ID #117692 – 2021/Y2746  – 5k, 6k, 10k).  Click here for the flyer of this AVA walk.

If you prefer to meet the group at LCCSP, turn right on the road to the Rec Hall.   Meet the group around 9:30 a.m. at the circle drive.

Not sure what we are doing for lunch, so you might want to bring some extra money for that.

This is a cool lake-side walk and we plan to have fun!

Hope to see you on Saturday – March 6th!
