Understandably, a question we’re asked a lot is, “When is the best time to visit the ranch? What’s the weather like in June? July? August? September?” When you’re located at over 7,000 feet above sea level there’s no straightforward answer when it comes to the weather.
I spent a lot of time thinking about how unpredictable mountain weather is as we went on several lengthy hikes out from the ranch this past week. It’s unusual to have no snow, blue skies and temperatures in the 50s in early February but that’s what we got, and we were not complaining! Especially since the week before we were treated to sub-zero temperatures and howling winds.
