Colorado Mountain Passes Trip
Planning on riding the high mountain passes in Colorado, basically a loop from Fairplay to Estes Park up, around and down to Leadville. What kind of weather can I expect? Planning on being there around June 20.
It is what it is.
Every kind. Elevation will be cold and windy and rainy and snowy and some possibility of sleet or hail.

I live up in Summit County. Expect very cool nights and if it rains it will be very, very cold rain. Snow is still a reality at that time of year. Generally Mother Nature likes to drop some short bursts of water around 1pm almost every day.
I'm leaving tomorrow for a trip out West. I will be back on the 20th. If you are in the area PM me and I can show you a free campsite in the Keystone area and I'll be happy to share a victory beer.
