Colorado Day 3: Trip to Even Higher Altitude
on day 3, we travel up over some higher peaks in the Rocky Mountains to get to the cabin of our family friends. The altitude went up to about 13,000 feet, which is not so great for breathing, as the air is “thinner” (less oxygen). I wasn’t feeling so great in the first place, so it was even harder to walk up the short distance to some of the outlook areas. We had lunch at Grand Lake Lodge Restaurant, where there was a spectacular view of Grand Lake.
The trip up to the cabin took us all day, but it was really worth the longer trip over the mountains. You’ll see some of the views we had in the gallery below. The cabin is at about 10,000 feet outside of Fairplay, Colorado.
