On this trail ride the Rockies show a typical weather pattern. We started sunny, then overnight the first snow, quite cold, then the same day the sun breaks through and the mountains show themselves at their best. This ride was quite high in the mountains. I have done others towards Great Jack Lake/Banff, where overnight we needed high electric fences to keep Grizzly bears out. We then stayed overnight in army tents.
