"Layers, layers - Yes, Layers!" Colorado Springs Packing List Tip by JacNDav

Colorado Springs What to Pack: 10 reviews and 2 photos

Luggage and bags: One bag with wheels will travel, but a backpack is nice to have for everything, from walking along shops to hiking in the woods.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: hiking boots or shoes with a good tread
Dress in layers, T-shirts, under long sleeve shirt, with a sweatshirt/sweater -
Always take a coat
light weight for summer, but a good one for winter especially if you're going to the mountains. We can still have a blizzard in May or June, then the next day it will be 76F degrees

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen
There are bugs but not a lot, there are mosquitos - I use lemongrass oil in my lotion to keep the bugs off of me.

Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We like the collapsible water jugs; they're lightweight, fold up and can be filled with a couple of gallons of water for your camp

Don't leave home without a Leatherman!
