High altitudes kicked my butt this summer. I climbed a mountain of volcanic gravel starting at 8000 or 9000 feet and 95 degrees and had to stop to catch my breath several times. I climbed a large sand dune 3/4 of a mile in 106 degree heat at 5000+ altitude for a great view and quickly became sorry I attempted it, but too embarassed to quit and turn back. We both walked up to Zabriskie Point in Death Valley in 123 degree heat, but at least it was at low altitude.
That is crazy! I would probably pass out and wake up to the vultures circling my body!
