Breathe deeply

I was boondocking along the road to Weston Pass, near Fairplay, Colorado, when I realized, whooo... boy... the air is kinda thin up here. Over 10,000 feet high.

People who are totally acclimated have no problem hiking, running, cycling, skiing... But I was winded after strolling around taking pictures.

Filling my lungs as deeply as possible feels great. It's a special bonus that the air is incredibly fresh. Cool, dry, fragrant—just the way I like it. I can forgive it for being a little short on oxygen.

  1. What a beautiful place it surely beat the heck out of southern California where the air is hot, dry & saturated with dust / pollen. Glad U're enjoying life many of us are stuck in a bricks-and-sticks with little scenery variation.
