Altitude is for the Birds

I live at sea level, happily breathing in moist salt air year round.  In order to visit our youngest son, we have to fly to Denver (elevation 5600), and then drive up a mountain pass to Winter Park (elevation 9000).  That’s almost 2 miles straight up from the beach!

I had never heard of altitude sickness before 1st traveling to Colorado- not a common problem along the east coast.  But I now know more about it than most…because it’s an issue each time I visit.

Not sure why people actually live in this environment- no ocean nearby, the temperature is below zero on a regular basis, you need a hat and gloves even in the summer, and the humidity level is so low (the famous “dry cold”) that your nose bleeds and skin peels.

The scenery is beautiful, and the sun shines more there than here…yet, it’s still hard for me to understand the appeal.

But, Colorado is the home of our son and his family (including our new grandson- just 3 weeks old), so I am determined to find a solution.
