This will be a relatively easy hike of about 5 miles to the Angel of Shavano campground. We will disperse camp outside the campground. We plan to then continue a mile or two up the ridge to the north.
The map was made with Topo Explorer: Colorado. I drew a magnetic north line on the map since my compass doesn't have a declination adjustment. The trail is marked every 1/10 of a mile.
The weather looks OK. I'm expecting high 20's at night and mild temperatures during the day. The 20's will probably happen when it's about time for coffee. I'll plan to have some wood collected for a morning fire.
