Good point about warm stuff...a good rain jacket is a must-have too on the trail. The monsoons are least currently.

Actualy, we were East-bound. We had been camping Northwest of the lake but had to break camp around midnight due to a sick family member (it's no fun leaking out of both ends in the woods)

We stopped at the divide, I usually feel that I am over prepared for the outdoors but I was reminded that "Nature can be a mother" here in Colorado. If you were not prepared for near freezing temps in July I think you could get into trouble in a hurry.

We saw a bunch of tourist last year in Silverton the weekend of RMAR in rental side by sides with nothing but shorts and t shirts all but freezing to death (kinda funny to see but also potentially serious)
