It is glorious up here, at 11,300 feet of elevation!
The trees, the wildlife, the rocks, the plants…
The hiking is well worth the effort!
But, hiking in such thin air is most definitely harder to do!
We were quite winded, quite frequently.
If you’re hiking with littles, my recommendation is definitely to take it slow.
Hike a bit, but then take a rest.
Explore the details.
The bark of a tree…
The leaf on a flower…
But, most importantly, stay hydrated, rest frequently, and be aware that the return trip IS a challenge!
But, be safe!
