The weather is nearly unpredictable in the Colorado Rockies, so be sure you know what the day’s forecast entails. Items such as a rain jacket, umbrella and a sweatshirt or fleece are all necessary items to have on hand, in case of any sudden turns in the weather in the spring or fall. During the month of July and early August, afternoon rainstorms are very common. Though you’ll see your fair share of sunshine during your visit, weather at 9,600 feet changes quickly so be prepared.
