[Rockies!] Life near the Alpine Visitor Center in Rocky Mountain National Park is cold and relatively low pressure oxygen is hard to use for an outta shape 46yo. That Visitor Center closed today at 4:30pm for the season and we were quite lucky the weather allowed us to travel the road at all. Sticking to lower altitudes for the rest of the week, as hypoxia isn't treating me well. Ann notices it, but is in great shape. Alexandra is 7 and was later seen running down a trail at 9k, so I assume she's okay.

Life is good!

More pictures from altitude! Being at sea level recently is fun, but granite peaks and snow make me long for the thin air.

[bwlongspeak] While this pic is not really taken at altitude, Long's Peak certainly has both attitude and altitude. IF I can get some measure of time to aclimate, lose about 30lbs., and gain some cajones, I might push myself and try that hike. She's a beauty, even if my pic of her doesn't do her justice.
