Living at high altitude can pose some difficulties. There really is less oxygen. Fortunately, we've never suffered any altitude sickness (outside of some frighteningly bad gas attacks!).
Here's our top eleven highest spots.
Denver, Colorado - 5200 feet
|Mile High Stadium. Looks like the freeway ends in it.|
|Danced in the mall at Pearl Street after a few cocktails|
|We went up to the 5th station|
|Really thought this would place higher in altitude, but we were in the clouds!|
|Hard to believe we flew 25 minutes downhill from La Paz to here.|
|Digging the Hoodoos at Rainbow Point|
|Such tiny little buildings|
|Hopping off point for all things Incan|
|Fly into the airport at 13300. City at 12500ish, goes as low as 10,000|
|Some clean, cold water and fresh, thin air. Good place for a sunburn.|
|Walking the old ski hill here almost killed me.|
We've also made it to the lowest navigable place on Earth at 1370 feet BELOW sea level. Do know where it is?
|I'll give you a hint. You can get your float on there!|
