Summer: Mid-June to Early-September
By the time June rolls around, snow is no longer a possibility and sunshine lasts for weeks. All of the roads in the state are open by Memorial Day. The days are long and HOT and temps often reach into the 90s or even a bit over 100. The nights are much warmer this time of year, but can still be a bit cool all summer long. With the super dry climate, it's almost always a very pleasant heat without humidity. Being in water is doable, but quite chilly even in the dead of summer. At this elevation, the sun is intense and will cause sun burn all year round, but is especially harsh in the summer. Don't forget sunscreen! Bring plenty of summer clothes with a layer for evenings and don't forget your swimwear! 4X4 or AWD is not necessary.
