Any packing tips?

Just checked the weather and it looks like high 60's, which seems cold for us from the east coast. Should we keep the shorts and tees at home? Thanks!

When are you coming? It is supposed to be in the 80's today. Hot for Breck. Nights are cool bring jeans, shorts, flip flops, hiking shoes, fleece, rain jacket, swim suit for hot-tub, back pack to stuff the layers in and you are pretty much good to go.

I understand, if the sun is out it will feel much warmer than that. You will want the shorts and t-shirts for daytime activities. I always have a extra top layer with me, this time of year it is usually a long sleeve running top, lightweight and folds up small, and a rain jacket.

You may be comfortable in jeans all the time, (hubby & I wear jeans most of the time) but you'll probably want shorts some, too, if you are used to wearing them. Bring the tee shirts and a couple of long sleeve shirts to layer over the tees.

In addition to alli's list, I always throw in a pair or two of wool socks. They serve for hiking socks plus slippers on chilly floors in the evening and early morning.
