Not hot, actually quite cold overnight; frost in the morning. Perfect for hiking, no bugs at all. This is now best time of year in the Rockies


Re age, it's a number. There are 20 yr olds 30lbs or more overweight that can't climb flight of stairs (but know how to text on social media with lighting speed lol). You just have to manage your body, aware that everything has expiration date. You lose speed and you recover more slowly, but endurance is still there. It all pays off many times when you crest places like Pulsatilla Pass, first pic on top of post. No pain, no trouble exists anymore; just elation of being able to live in such a special moment and place. Memories like that stay with you forever
