    Default How cold does it get?

    Planning on hiking segments 1-3 starting 8 June. Just wondering what the average low temps are for this period?

    Warm

    Highest el about 7800' maybe 40-45 for low if lucky.

    Not much different from your home in Co springs.

    Id take a 40 rated quilt or bag. Especially in tent . But almost anything will work . A 20 wont be unuseable. A 30 probably perfect.

    Since early june, maybe err on side of caution and look at forecast. Might be possible to see freeze overnight if cold snap.

    I was out there begging of July last year and it was pretty warm up until Breckinridge...i was hot with a 20* quilt in a bivy...as muddy said 30*-40* would likely be ideal. I hope to restart CT in September. Didnít use any baselayer or insulation....
