This is Jed after he climbed his first 14er in Colorado. What do you see- victory? Confidence? Strength? . What isn’t pictured is the fact that Jed said this was the hardest thing he has ever done. We both underestimated the effect of altitude! . What you also don’t see is the fact that I drove to the top of the mountain to meet him and then proceeded to have an altitude attack at the top, attempted to drive back down the mountain, had to abandon the car halfway down, and had to hitch a ride with a stranger the rest of the way. . Travel never goes as planned. I’m thankful we’ve learned to be flexible, and to laugh that some of the situations we find ourselves in! . For a real treat, zoom in and look at how crazy Jed’s hair is in this photo 😆 . . . . . #colorado #14ers #14ersofcolorado #mountevans #summit #explorecolorado #colorado_creative #mtevans #adventure_culture #conquerer #coupleswhohike #coloradomountains #coloradosky #altitude #altitudesickness #altitudesucksbutlookatthatview

The Mount Evans Scenic Byway, just 60 miles west of Denver, is the highest paved road in North America. A day trip to the top is a journey that snakes and climbs through nearly 9,000 feet of elevation gain, from the high plains of Denver through five climate zones to the 14,264-foot summit of Mount Evans – one of 54 peaks in Colorado that soar to 14,000 feet and above – the famous “fourteeners.” #mtevans #colorado #altitudesickness #rockymountains #adventure #naturelovers

Bonjour de Bolivie ! Il fait grand beau même a 3800m au dessus du niveau de la mer! Truite fraîche au menu, coucher de soleil sur cet immense lac d'où a émergé la civilisation Inca #sunglassesrequired #altitudesickness #Bolivie #lactiticaca #copacabana #quebectravelers

🌈⛰️ So glad we made it up to rainbow mountain! Thank you to all who helped me walk through the pain. 😅 . . . . . The good: spectacular views The not so colorful: Vinicunca is 17,000 feet above sea level. A lot of us were affected by altitude sickness - nausea/vomiting, dizziness, numbness, and hearing loss.

We made it up to 15,104ft today 🙌🏻 The altitude got the best of me & @shanleydeignan but these views were 100% worth it!

At just 7 years old my amazing daughter was just feet away from Camp Muir on Mt Rainier. She wanted to keep pushing, but her altitude sickness was so bad we couldn't risk it. One tough, and brave little cookie. Now 12 years old and one avid little hiker with 100's of miles already trekked. #proudmom #mylittlehiker #optoutside #sheamazesme #nochallengeistoobig #idhikethat #littlehikers #altitudesickness #shestough #shesabadass #prana #merrill #keen #osprey #gregorypacks #rainier #mtrainier #themountainisout
