RE: A wonderful Wednesday walk to the top of Wheeler Peak Wilderness
Leadville can be very cold and snowy and sometimes bleak, but it gets a lot of sunshine. So you could walk outside one day in January and it might be 15 outside but not a cloud in the sky and feels like freezing. Shorts weather.
I lived in Leadville for almost 5 years. It's a cool town but recently it's started getting discovered and ruined by rich people looking for vacation homes. I doubt I'll ever live there again.
