2010/101: Got Oxygen?

We may have been at a higher elevation when we took the cog rail up Pikes Peak, but this was the highest at Rocky Mountain National Park.

    We learned many days later that the GPS can take a screen shot. We haven’t really tried it for comparison yet but it should be easier then fighting glare.

  2. Great idea to commemorate your high point! I lived in Los Alamos, New Mexico for a couple years and when I first moved there, I would stop at the video store and pretend to shop for movies during my walk around the neighborhood, just so I could catch my breath.

    • Hmm… I don’t remember where exactly that was, so I don’t know what the view was like. It’s really beautiful there, though. The roads were fine. All paved and not scary at all. (That was the main reason why we took the cog rail up Pikes Peak, because driving WOULD have been scary!)

    Holy moly! Did anybody have any problems being up that high?

    • Not really, Amy. Melissa and I had a headache one of the days in Estes Park, but nothing a little food and drink didn’t cure, so I don’t think it was altitude sickness (the only cure for that is to get to a lower elevation).
      You do get out of breath a lot easier up there.

  5. Only YOU think to capture this stuff (it’s great!) 🙂 I rememnber when we were in Utah and they warn you about the high elevation. We also didn’t have any real issues but I do remember being out of breath!
