How cold does it get up there in late July?

How hot does it get up there in late July?

Do I need to bring winter clothing?

All I have is a light weight Fly vented summer jacket and a pair of vented MX pants.

I've got a section of video that showed some guys got a tad chilly when we were getting rained on. I forgot why we stopped, but I recall looking at this guy just standing here looking back at me in the rain......He didn't look too thrilled to be soaked.....

I would suggest you bring a good rain jacket, as it will rain hard. At the campsite the wind blew so hard it knocked over my bike.....

If you are tent camping, have a warm bag. I had frost on my tent one morning last year.

Cautions to be prepared are well taken. Be prepared for rain and cold.

Or it could be nice and warm. I tent camped in Lake City on saturday night and it was a toasty 50F at night. This may never happen again, so be prepared...

Layer up, keep dry & BE PREPARED

Colorado is the only place I've ever been that can have 85 degrees off the mtn & SNOWING on mtn top - All in the SAME AFTERNOON

Imogene Pass end of August 2010 :
A lightning storm turned into rain, sleet, hail & then SNOW covering the ground all within 30mins before we could get off the mtn

I wanna go back



8ft of Snow in August that still hasn't melted

I will be in Ouray Monday afternoon through Wednesday. Relocating to Silverton Thursday. May do some Versys style riding around Ouray, then WR250R for the RMAR.
