  •  those "foothills" looked like mountains (7+ / 0-)

    You must be in incredible shape.  I do not know if I could manage the foothills.

    •  Now that you mention it... (5+ / 0-)

      Some of them are small mountains in the 3k range.

      If your comment is meant for me, I wouldn't say I'm in great shape - just that I've built up a little bit of practice.  I move slower than most hikers do.  Also, the height of the mountain isn't as significant (beneath the threshold where air supply becomes an issue) as the elevation gain from where you start.  The gain on Sunset Peak from the trailhead is 1300 feet spread over a 3.5-mile trail, so it's considered a "moderate" hike.
