"don't attempt this unless..." Colorado Warnings Or Dangers Tip by danmcf

Colorado Warnings and Dangers: 63 reviews and 46 photos


don't attempt this unless you've been living at higher altitudes already. That's my mom and daughter pictured. Mom's the one with a cigarette in her hand, and this is exactly something you don't want to do in the high mountains. Many people from lower elevations will get lightheaded at the higher altitudes, another possible symptom is an upset stomach. Smoking will only aggravate the situation!
