  •  So true about the altitude sickness. (6+ / 0-)

    A lot of people when they go out to ski at high altitude. Hit the slopes the first day...and can get very sick. We always drink lots of water 2 before we go out to the higher altitude, and we don't have alcohol for a couple of days either.

    We took a friend to Breckenridge Co. she got the sickness bad. We took her down to 4700 feet for a couple of days and she was alright when we went back to the 10,000 ft.

    First time ever at the high altitude, my hubby and I thought we were having heart attacks.

    Glad you were able to finish your beautiful trip.
